Joe Duffy - The Nation's Voice

"Ever wondered where the celestial wonder of the O’Connor family came from? Singer Sinéad, writer Joe, art historian Emer, as well as successful siblings John and Eoin are not just brilliant at their craft – they are also inordinately decent people. So it’s no surprise that father of the clan Seán should come up trumps when he put pen to paper. His memoir, Growing Up So High, A Liberties Boyhood, is a beautifully written tale of childhood reminiscent of another great writer, Frank O’Connor... no relation!"
