At war by Flann O'Brien ( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At War is a collection of Flann O'Brien's columns written for the Irish Times under the pseudonym Myles na Gopaleen. Taken from the war years of 1940-45, these writings provide plenty of acerbic wit and persistent prodding of "the good people of Ireland." And in typical O'Brien fashion, no one is safe from his opinionated attacks. His oftentimes hysterical musings include discussions of theater, what it means to be Irish, ideas for alternative pubs and liquors, advice for children, and ways to improve the home."--BOOK JACKET

Myles before Myles : a selection of the earlier writings of Brian O'Nolan by Flann O'Brien ( Book )
8 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Myles Before Myles is a wonderfully funny selection of writings from the pen of Brian O'Nolan (aka Flann O'Brien, Myles na Gopaleen, George Knowall). In this funfilled extravaganza he is, above all, an entertainer, a 'gas man'. Like much of O'Nolan's most entertaining work, the pieces in this did not originally appear in book form, but in periodicals and newspapers that are now almost impossible to find. Myles Before Myles reveals that some of his wittiest and most unusual were published years before Myles na Gopaleen (or Flann O'Brien) had even been born, and were destined to lie in almost co
Dublin's other poetry : rhymes and songs of the city by John Wyse Jackson ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dublin's writers rarely remain solemn for long: their wicked sense of humour has travelled the world. This is an irresistible new anthology of what used to be called 'comic and curious verse' about the city, written by some of her most entertaining poets and songwriters." "Fashions in verse come and go. Too often we forget - paradoxically - the most memorable works of wit, sarcasm or absurdity. The ones gathered here were written over four centuries, and were inspired by many things - among them love, injustice, history, politics, animals and alcohol, but most of all by the citizens of Dublin themselves. Whether the lines are satirical, sentimental, subversive, sexy or just plain silly, you will find that many of them show a rare seriousness as well." "Each poem comes with background information about where it originated, and each page is illuminated by Hector McDonnell's wonderful, witty drawings." --Book Jacket

Ireland's other poetry : Anonymous to Zozimus by Hector McDonnell ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
DRAWN FROM FOUR CENTURIES of writing in English by the famous and the forgotten, Ireland's Other Poetry: Anonymous to Zozimus is a major new anthology of entertaining and unusual poems, rhymes and songs. It revisits a forgotten Irish poetic landscape, bringing the reader on an exhilarating alphabetical tour through a country freighted with unexpected curiosities, from Dunluce to Belfast, Dublin, Cork and the Skelligs. Many anonymous or neglected poets, humorists and lyricists will be encountered, as will more celebrated writers, often in skittish mood. They range from Jonathan Swift to Shane M

Ulster's Other Poetry Verses and Songs of the Province by Hector McDonnell ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ULSTER' S OTHER POETRY proves that the people of Ulster have never been humourless or dour. Far from it. With its sparkling variety of rhymes, songs and humorous poems from every tradition of the province, the book demonstrates that those who dwell in the northern quarter of Ireland have their own unique take on the strange ways of the world, coupled with a whole-hearted appreciation of good fun. Spanning over three centuries of Ulster's past, this anthology is full of comic pleasures. In its pages, country ballads jostle with city satires, songs aimed at children meet jingles advertising bre
