Meet the young Agnes Brown, mother of the famous Mrs. Brown's Boys from the daily radio soap. Read about her joys and sorrows in this trilogy crammed with hilarious incidents, glorious characters, and a passion for life. "Mammy" is what Irish children call their mothers and The Mammy is Agnes Browne - a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humour and great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias "The Kaiser") and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor. The second book in the series is The Chisellers where Agnes Browne and her seven 'chisellers' take on the world a and win! And the final installment, The Granny our comedic and lovable heroine, Agnes Browne's family is all grown up, but this doesn't mean life is any less exciting! These books feature pitch-perfect dialogue, lightning wit, and a host of colourful characters. Earthy and exuberant, these novels brilliantly capture the brash energy and cheerful irreverence of working class Irish life., in the great tradition of Roddy Doyle's Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.

Heart warming story
This is the last part of the Agnes Browne saga.
I hadnt heard ofthis author until I saw Mrs Brown's Boys on TV and then in a live performance. There is warmth ,humour and sadness in these four books which tell the life story of Agnes Browne,Moore Street marketeer and Dublin Mum and Widow . She desperately wants to support her family emotionally but it's not an easy task! She is the inspiration for "Mrs Brown's Boys".
