Ross O’Carroll-Kelly makes his first visit to the heartland of Munster rugby here in Limerick at the end of March. Ross, the deluded affluent snobbish Dublin 4 rugby jock, is a fictional creation of multi award-winning novelist Paul Howard. The Ross O’Carroll-Kelly column first appeared in The Sunday Tribune in 1998 and has since spawned more than 15 novels, a spoken word CD and three plays.
Our favourite Ross O’Carroll-Kelly quotes
“I know it’s only Tuesday but I’m taking the rest of the week off to mork the retirement of the great Paul O’Connell, one of my all-time heroes and I think he’d say the same about me.
“Then this bird comes over, Roysh, Danielle’s her name, or Measles – as the goys call her, basically because everyone’s had her once and nobody really wants her a second time.
“I’ve genuinely never seen Sorcha so angry . . .
. . . for something other than sleeping
with her friends
