The Spoons Murder & Other Mysteries - Con O'Driscoll\r\n

For the past couple of decades these songs have been passed around and savoured by those who delight in the pleasures of improbable stories and witty verse. \r\n\r\nSeveral have been recorded, by Jimmy Crowley, Rosie Stewart and others, and some of them have become modern �folk songs�, having entered the living tradition and being transmitted from singer to singer.\r\n\r\nFor the first time the general public can enjoy what has up to now been a treat available only to the few - the comic songs of Con � Drisceoil.\r\n\r\nHere you will find many intriguing tales: the birthday cake with extraordinary properties; the cockroach who debates nice points of philosophy with his victim; the awful fate of the man who rattled his spoons once too often, and many more. \r\n\r\nThe author's capacity for creating bizarre situations is matched by his ability to capture them, as he himself remarks, �in flawless rhyme� and �in a metre without blemishes�!\r\n\r\nCon O'Driscoll\r\n\r\n
