Publisher's Summary

Fans of Agnes Browne craving further hilarious and heartwarming adventures will be delighted with The Chisellers.

Agnes, the lovable and determined heroine, returns with her seven children - whom she affectionately calls 'the chisellers' - all struggling to make their way in the world with varying degrees of success. To make matters more difficult, as Agnes struggles along the bumpy road of parenting, she learns that the family is about to be forced out of their tenement home in the name of urban renewal. Pierre, Agnes' persistent suitor, is thankfully on hand to console her.

Like all good Irish stories, The Chisellers includes a wedding and a funeral, much laughter and some tears - and it is sure to please newcomers as well as loyal fans of this terrific series.

Critic Reviews

"It's refreshing to enter O'Carroll's fun-loving working-class world." ( Entertainment Weekly)
"Shades of O'Casey, as well as Brendan Behan. A story as colourful as Moore Street itself, but there is also pathos, compassion and irony." ( Entertainer)
"This lively novel features a wedding, a funeral and an ending that will melt the hardest heart. Readers will eagerly await the third book in this series." ( Publishers Weekly)

Great Listening

If you're interested in the back story to the comedy TV show then this series of books is a must listen for you. Almost a prequel to the show you see on TV, it brings to life the origins, trials and tribulations of the Brown family. Gently humorous and a fascinating listen, read excellently.
