Hopefully will be sooner than later. I suspect he has discovered that writing a book isn't easy, unless you're going to just slop something together and put it on the market like a former band member did. And no matter how honest and true Donal tries to be to Rory's memory and legacy, there will be critics out there waiting to jump on every word.

Still, I'd be one of those fans willing to shove my way to the front of the line to read it.

One interesting book to read would be something along the lines of a dialog between Donal and Tom Odriscoll- between the two of them, I'm sure there would be a couple of very interesting books' worth of insight into Rory. Something that would go all the way back to Rory's showband days, up to the present. And I think that would be one Rory would be satisfied with. IMHO.
