Eoin O'Cellaigh: writer, poet, nationalist, playwright, civil servant, commentator (non-sport) - above all a defender of the traditional values of Ireland. The 'land of saints and scholars' has produced another grand voice. A true renaissance Catholic, Eoin O'Cellaigh has witnessed nearly a century of stirring events in the history of Ireland. This is his autobiography. O'Cellaigh enthrallingly recounts the key moments in his rich life, such as his success in bringing Pope John Paul II to Ireland, or his founding of the League of the Mother of God Against Sin, which kept jazz and modern dancing out of Irish life for most of the century. The young O'Cellaigh was marked for life by his meeting with that mythical battler for Irish independence Michael Collins, for whom he once hid sausages under the bed. As he grew older he was drawn towards the important work of censorship and campaigning against sex. In the words of Frank Sinatra, he did things, 'swell.' 'Well-remembered Days is the funniest satire I've read in years' Time Out

I read this when it came out and recently read it again whilst travelling back from Spain (I wasn't driving!). I laughed so much that people started asking me what was wrong. To put this into context I hardly ever laugh at 'comedies' books etc, this however hit me continually throughout.

It is the invented memoirs of Eoin O'Cealligh. Like Father Ted it does help if you know a bit about Irish Catholicism, but friends who have borrowed this did not feel this to be a barrier. One of the reviewers has said that it is a one trick pony with the same joke being retold, I very much beg to differ, there is a full treatment of Irish politics, the relentless and quite pointless poetry and the ever apparent curiosity and fear of anything to do with the filthy business of sex. Everyone concerned have fantastical names with more vowels than is feasibly necessary as is the case with Irish names. It even has a pictorial section for added fake authenticity. I had to stop reading it at one point because I was making a spectacle of myself, but have probably helped sell a few more copies, I can not think of a better read (but not at a Christening or some such occasion - my mistake).
I bought this book from not knowing a thing about it or what to expect!
This book is very well written, entertaining and crammed with laughter from start to finish.
A totally irreverant but gentle poke in the eye at the old Irish catholic way of life, even the modern ones could learn a thing or two! I just couldn't put it down.
This book is a must for anyone who's ever told or heard an Irish joke.
Wether you want an insight into Irish politics, religion or just to brush up on your 'one liners' this is a book for you.
A veritable treat of knowledge and laughter!
I love funny books. This book is not funny. I ordered it based on a review claiming it was the "funniest book ever". It is just a satire of this man's life. I had hoped for humor along the lines of Angela's Ashes - funny instances of real life. This was ridiculous imaginings of this man's life. I painfully worked my way through the first chapter of the book, hoping it would get better - it failed to. It just got worse...
