I don't know if it's been written elsewhere, but I'm to report that Marcus Connaughton has written a new book about Rory that he hopes to have published by year end.

Over the weekend Marcus sent me an email. I asked if it was OK to pass the news along. His reply was typical Marcus.
"fine to pass the word about the book it's only taken me forty years to complete it ! - "

For anyone not familiar with Marcus, he's been an RTE presenter & series producer for years & iis a huge Rory fan.
Here's a great talk Marcus did at the Cork library the November after Rory left us

I'm expecting it to be a great book!

I'll pass on info about the book when I get it

Marcus has been writing this book for a while. I chatted to him about it about 4 years ago in the blues club in Cork. He said it was a work in progress.

Should be excellent and fill the gap until Donal finishes his one.

Keep us posted.

I look forward to this book and once I have read I will recommend copies to my SUNDAY BOOKCLUB in London which I launched at the beginning of this month. In this way readers will know about Rory and it helps me to keep my promise to Rory to spread his music far and wide. Subrata. x

Sounds like it will be an interesting read. Does anyone know if the Gallagher family has reviewed or endorsed it?

A friend of mine and Marcus has read a draft..he recommends it.

Marcus requested that he proof-read it.

Thats good enough for me.
