Publisher's Summary

The Mammy is Agnes Browne - a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humour and great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias 'The Kaiser') and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor.
Like the books of Roddy Doyle, The Mammy features pitch-perfect dialogue, lightning wit, and a host of colourful characters. Earthy and exuberant, the audiobook brilliantly captures the brash energy and cheerful irreverence of working-class Irish life.

The Mammy

Excellent story well read. I really enjoyed it and although Agnes is tough there is an innocence and vulnerability about her.
