Allen Foster lives on a farm in Enfield, Co Meath. When not tending to his cattle or walking his beloved dogs, he finds the time to be a freelance journalist and researcher.

He is the author of eight other books, including Foster’s Even Odder Irish Oddities.

This compendium of stories from all over the country illustrates how bizarre and wonderful events and people have entertained us throughout history. From the Lismore man who rode to Fermoy in a tub pulled by a pig, a badger, two cats, a goose and a hedgehog, to the fortune discovered in a Belfast piano once owned by destitute sisters, and the Cashel man who insisted on being evicted while lying in his coffin, this is the perfect gift book for anyone with an interest in Irish history and a taste for the absurd.
