Join us for an evening with Ardal O’Hanlon in conversation with fellow writer and comedian, Colm O’Regan.
From his sublimely ridiculous Dougal in Father Ted to his endlessly inventive stand-up, Ardal O’Hanlon has delighted viewers and audiences with his keenly observed characters. Bleak, crude, and wonderfully funny, Ardal O’Hanlon is clearly having fun with his second novel, Brouhaha, a blackly comic mystery about a small town in Ireland losing the head, literally. Dove Connelly is dead – and that’s just the beginning. His best friend Sharkey is looking into the shadows of Tullyvanna, the fictional small town that could be anywhere in Ireland, and what he might find is anyone’s guess. Because if there’s one thing small Irish towns are good at, it’s keeping secrets.
Born in Monaghan, Ardal O’Hanlon is an actor, a comedian, a writer, and a documentary filmmaker, based in Dublin. Brouhaha is his second novel. His first, Talk of the Town, was published in 1998.
