I have just finished this lovely book. The song *If you're Irish come into the parlour* comes to mind .... Two chairs either side of a roaring peat fire. Seated on one side Raymond McCullough and me on the other just listening as he tells his tales of old Ireland and his ancestry. William Allingham who wrote many poems including The Fairies is purported to be part of his family tree. An Irish tale maybe? No I don't think so.
As I worked my way through the book which is interspersed with various photographs of Ireland I laughed along with Raymond as he related the funny and at times unusual Irish expressions such as.... "You may not be wrong but I know I'm right" or "Yer looking awfully well,are ye sick?" and "Yer funny but yer face bates ye."
He also touches on the history of Ireland and the recent troubles which is all done in a very light hearted way.
My roots are steeped in Ireland of which I'm proud. Equally so is Raymond McCullough who is a man of many talents and writing being just one.
I completely recommend A Wee Taste a Craic which can easily be read in bite sized chunks.
Raymond McCullough comes across as a man who is immensely proud of his Ulster heritage and very down to earth. I have not had the privilege of hearing any of his radio broadcasts but this is a matter I intend to rectify.
A wonderfully educational - without being patronising - book well worth your time and money.
