About the Author

Gerry McCullough has been writing poems and stories since childhood. Brought up in north Belfast, she graduated in English and Philosophy from Queen's University, Belfast, then went on to gain an MA in English. She lives just outside Belfast, in Northern Ireland, has four grown up children and is married to author, media producer and broadcaster, Raymond McCullough, with whom she co-edited the Irish magazine, 'Bread', (published by Kingdom Come Trust), from 1990-96. In 1995 they published a non-fiction book called, 'Ireland - now the good news!' Over the past few years Gerry has had around sixty short stories published in UK, Irish and American magazines, anthologies and annuals – as well as broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster. Her poems and articles have been published in several Northern Ireland and UK magazines, and she has also done readings from her novels, poems and short stories at several Irish literary events. She writes a regular literary blog – Gerry's Books – and guest writes for several other literary blogs. Gerry won the Cúirt International Literary Award for 2005 (Galway); was shortlisted for the 2008 Brian Moore Award (Belfast); shortlisted for the 2009 Cuírt Award; and commended in the 2009 Seán O'Faolain Short Story Competition, (Cork). Gerry currently has three full-length Irish thriller/romance novels available, plus a short story collection:– Belfast Girls – November 2010 (Night Publishing, UK – re-published 2012 by Precious Oil Publications) Danger, Danger – October 2011 (Precious Oil Publications) Angel in Flight: an Angel Murphy thriller – June 2012 (Precious Oil) The Seanachie: Tales of Old Seamus – January 2012 (Precious Oil) (previously published in an Irish weekly magazine) The Cúirt Award-winning story, 'Primroses,' and the Seán O'Faolain commended story, 'Giving Up,' have been extended and re-written as part of a series of eight more serious Irish short stories – to be published later in 2012. Also in the pipeline are, 'Lady Molly and the Snapper' – a young adult time travel adventure, set in Dublin; and 'Not the End of the World' – a humorous, futuristic, adult fantasy novel – both coming soon from Precious Oil.

If you've never been to Ireland or Northern Ireland, once you read these 12 tales by Northern Irish writer Gerry McCullough, you will want to go. In fact, you will likely want to go to Donegal, find a pub and wait for a seanachie (Irish storyteller) to begin spinning his tales.

"Whenever I can," the narrator begins, "I like to spend a week, or even a long weekend, i Ardnakil, the small Donegal village where I used to come to visit my grandparents -- too many years ago. And when I'm there, I take the opportunity to call in on old Seamus O'Hare. Seamus taught me everything I know about fishing,poaching, and the countryside." With that, I knew I was in for a very enjoyable experience.

Seamus O'Hare may be an irresistible old rogue, but he's the kind people love to sit and listen to for hours on end whenever the opportunity presents itself. I'll be looking old Seamus up from now on. I hope Gerry McCullough has another collection of these charming tales coming out one of these days. They're irresistible.

What an enjoyable read! I expected to like these tales from Ireland. What I didn't expect was the sheer delight I felt reading them. They are so well written that you can hear the soft Irish brogue of the narrator; and, it's never over the top... or under, for that matter. Lovely imagery, funny stories, sad and touching stories, it was a pure pleasure to read through. This is one I'll keep on my Kindle for those times when I want something to read to make me smile. Gerry McCullough is a most talented writer who brought a warm, gentle, humorous Ireland to life for me. Loved this collection!
