Kevin Barry, in his foreword to Anthony Cronin’s biography of Flann O’Brien (aka Brian O’Nolan and Myles na gCopaleen), No Laughing Matter, states that Flann had posthumously found the ideal biographer.

Pearson's Picks

Very disappointing from Normandy Barriere today, although more frustrating after putting a positive word in for the winner Flavius Titus, but alas, the P/L for April is +10.12pts. Newmarket 1:50 A very trappy race, but I’m prepared to take a punt on YOUSINI here. He won his first two in good style, the second start […]
