Ireland's most acclaimed satirist is back with a second collection of short stories to provoke, unsettle and illuminate.



Roving through the centuries, from the barren fields of the Famine-struck West to the hyperreal adscape of our technocratic present, the second collection of short stories from Blindboy Boatclub is a wild and exhilarating hike along the knotted paths of the Irish subconscious.



From the time-travelling effects of tweed suits, to a vengeful farmer who hypnotises old people into believing they're cows after his farm is turned into a nursing home, these stories are characteristically surreal, yet littered with moments of profound insight and quiet devastation.

Hallelujah: Memories of a Singing Priest
Fr Ray Kelly, ‘the singing priest’, became a worldwide internet sensation when a video of him singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at a wedding in 2014 went viral. His wonderful voice captured hearts globally and landed him a record deal with Universal Music. In 2018 he auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, singing ‘Everybody Hurts’ by R.E.M., and he made it to the semi-finals of the show.

This is his memoir, describing his fascinating journey from parish priest to fame, and following his experience of sharing his exceptional talent with the world. Charting his childhood in Tyrrellspass, his calling to the seminary and his work as a priest, the book culminates in Fr Kelly being catapulted into the limelight because of his extraordinary talent.
