The Long-Lost Short Stories of Gearóid P. Mannion
Edited and Compiled by Karen and Sinéad Mannion
Hidden in a cupboard under the sink for over a quarter of a century lay a collection of essays long forgotten. Enter the world of a precocious teenager growing up in 1980s rural Ireland. These stories are made all the more poignant because their author, in spite of having a life-limiting illness, illuminates his incredible mind. Gearóid P. Mannion passed away at 21 but his legacy lives on in this funny, heartfelt, warm collection of essays written when he was a teenager – his shining light will never go out.
All proceeds of this book go to Muscular Dystrophy Ireland.
