About This Book

Have you heard of Frederick Hervey, the atheist Bishop of Derry who hated church bells? What about Samuel Boyce, the poet who couldn’t afford trousers? Not even Mary Monckton, who once stole a live hedgehog from a dinner party? The Men Who Stare at Hens is a gentle meander down the byways and highways of Irish history, remembering the wonderful array of eccentrics that made their mark on their times.
