‘Ronan’s Rants’ book launch at CRAIC Theatre – in pictures12, December 2011 | By: brendan64 | 1 Comment »
Comedian Jake O’Kane came to CRAIC Theatre to help launch a new book by award-winning Coalisland columnist Ronan McSherry.
The Belfast comic was among the friends, fans and well-wishers who attended the launch of ‘Ronan’s Rants’.
The new publication features a selection of “rants” from Mr McSherry’s weekly column in the Tyrone Herald.
The book launch took place on Thursday, December 8 at CRAIC Theatre. Mr McSherry also launched the book in Belfast today at the Harlequins Rugby Club in the city.
In June, Mr McSherry fended off competition from some of Northern Ireland’s most prominent journalists to be named Columnist of the Year at the CIPR Coca Cola Press Awards.
In choosing Mr McSherry as the Columnist of the Year, the judges said: “This winner, as well as being funny and provocative, is able to weave the small details of life in Tyrone, into the bigger national and international issues of the day.”
As reported by Coalisland Post, Blame Game comedian O’Kane has previously joked that he was “traumatised” by the sight of Mr McSherry’s man-boobs.
‘Ronan’s Rants’ is available in: Begleys, Dungannon; Sullivans, Coalisland; the Carlisle Bookshop in Omagh; and Ulster Herald office, John Street, Omagh, priced at £7.99 RRP
