Once Upon a Time in Donnybrook by Ross O'Carrol-Kelly

Once Upon a Time in Donnybrook

By Ross O'Carroll-Kelly

Ireland, Ireland – no longer standing Dáil …

Leinster House had been burned to the ground. All that was left was a smouldering ruin and the blackened remains of an Irish flag.

The old man was trying to pin the blame on Brussels, but I knew the actual truth? Unfortunately, Sorcha was too angry with me for having sex with our daughter’s Irish teacher to listen.

But I had, like, other irons in the – pordon the pun – fire. I’d just become Head Coach of the Ireland rugby team – albeit, women.

The country might well have been focked. But very soon, we had everyone believing in fairy tales again.

And it all happened once upon a time in . . . Donnybrook
