‘The Ballad of Mossy Flood’ might just save humanity from self-destruction

Mossy Flood has a knack of going the long way around a story. In so doing, he makes us laugh and examine ourselves in a way we haven’t done before. He might be an unsociable odd-ball with a big thick head, but his wrestling with the every day  is pure gold. 

He will always land on his feet or at least somewhere near his feet… because he is Mossy Flood… and he’s from Longford. . ‘The Ballad of Mossy Flood’ might just save humanity from self-destruction.
