John Barry

This is a collection of John Barry’s favourite funny stories from over the years. He has always enjoyed laughing and when he hears a good yarn tries to remember it and now hopes to share his funniest stories through this book. John Barry was born in Cork to a family involved in the tea business. He left Cork in 1975 and travelled around the world where he started collecting stories always with a particular fondness for Irish stories.

“I hope they bring some light relief to the readers in an uncertain world. Without humour we are doomed. Nothing is more disposable than a joke.”

– John Barry
