Book of Poor Ould Fellas: Notes from a Lost Tribe

12.50

It’s been ten years since Declan Lynch and Arthur Mathews first shone a light into this darkest corner of the darkest living room, and since then much has changed, as this new volume on the travails and joys of this almost-forgotten species reveals. Cast out from their beloved cosy bars by the smoking ban, further confined to their unhappy dwelling places by the drink driving laws, tormented by the incessant cooking of TV chefs, they had been effectively abandoned by a society which cares nothing for their modest needs. Combining the razor-sharp wit of writer Declan Lynch with illustrations from Father Ted co-creator Arthur Mathews, ‘Notes from a Lost Tribe’ is a road map through a way of life which may be floundering, but is not yet defeated. Quite.

Description

Combining the razor-sharp wit of writer Declan Lynch with illustrations and contributions from Father Ted co-creator Arthur Mathews.

Since Declan Lynch and Arthur Mathews first shone a light into this darkest corner of the darkest living room in all of Ireland over a decade ago, things have actually got worse for that almost-forgotten species we call the Poor Ould Fellas – impossible though it seems.

Further confined to their unhappy dwelling places by the drink-driving laws, a new range of challenges have emerged to torment them in a baffling post-analog world, where emails seek to release them from the few remaining shillings that weren’t stolen by bankers during the crash.

Now they must negotiate a universe full of new words (falafel, bitcoin, Spotify) and concepts (texting, sexting, going away for the weekend, composing a tweet, growing a beard, online banking) that mean absolutely nothing to them. Notes from a Lost Tribe is a hilarious road map through a world of forgotten men and their equally forgotten dogs, who ask for so little – yet it is denied them.

And still … somehow … inexplicably … they go on.
