John, who is a Roscrea native, is currently seeking patronage of €20 for which people will receive a signed hardback copy of the book. The patron’s names will also appear on the patron’s list in the book.

This book explores folklore, history and remembrances of the past through the recountances of not only John but others who have lived through them. The book includes countless references to landmarks and people in the Dunkerrin, Shinrone and Roscrea area. It also includes short stories for example ‘Two Women on a Mission’ and ‘The Cure’.

The publication will run on a limited print and those who wish to secure their copy can do so before April 2. To do so, or to find out more, visit www.facebook.com/johnbrownebooktwo. People can also contact John or Kay on 0505 47215 or 087 918 5705.
