Joe Riley takes a look back at a dozen yearsMoreGhosts of Kilrush is the heart-felt memoir of a young English boy, abandoned by his father in small town in western Ireland, who was raised as a beloved son by an Irish family who treated him as their own. Joe Riley takes a look back at a dozen years after World War 2 as he affectionately recalls the world of Kilrush, County Clare, and its many colorful characters who influenced his childhood, including his Auntie May and Uncle Andrew DeLoughery, and their family, neighbors and friends, who turned Joe Rileys bittersweet childhood from one of grim isolation into an experience of loving acceptance.
