About this deal

He's the youngest of 11 children from a poor family in Dublin, he's a boy whose father died when he was just nine years old; he's someone whose hope and determination meant he never gave up.

I had not known that the stage version of Mrs Brown's boys had toured the UK year's before they were a BBC Comedy programme. The show won the comedy award at the NTAs five times won three BAFTA Scotland awards and in 2012 won a BAFTA TV Award for Best Situation Comedy. He is best known for playing Agnes Brown in Mrs Brown's Boys, which won the best sitcom BAFTA in 2012.I always wondered about the background of Brendon O'Caroll, especially as I have worked in the area of Finglas where he is from , and where Mrs Brown is based. One thing I love about the show is how much of his immediate family (partner/kids/old friends) are involved and that really comes through with the inner warmth and heart of the show. I loved the early Mrs Brown Series and this book incorporates the nature and personal attributes of the whole cast while building up a fabulous description of Brendan and his many qualities. He has also published seven novels, including The Mammy, The Scrapper and The Young Wan - a number of which have been translated into 12 languages. In his own unique voice, Brendan O'Carroll strings together the threads of his life, a helter-skelter story tracing the helter-skelter journey of a scrawny kid from Finglas, Dublin to TV screens around the world, told with warmth, humour, a touch of mischievousness - and more than a few coincidences.

She grew up in Southeast Texas and still considers Texas home, but has recently lived in Maine and Virginia. Throughout the tough moments, Brendan always had humour and a good story to tell alongside the ever-guiding inspiration of his own Mammy, a formidable figure who became Ireland's first female Labour MP, all whilst raising eleven children by herself.With more time on her hands after retirement and several close family members' deaths, she now has the luxury to immerse herself into her beloved writing hobby.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Told with warmth, humour, a touch of mischievousness - and more than a few coincidences - this is the fascinating story of the one and only, Brendan O'Carroll.

We're always happy to answer any questions or queries you might have, please get in touch using one of the methods below. He is a member of Mensa and he's best-known for writing popular television sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys, playing Agnes Brown. She wrote under a pen name because, at the time her series began, men dominated the genres of action/adventure, SciFi and lore. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you.
