Colm O'Regan is a writer, broadcaster and comedian. He is from the Cork village of Dripsey which was once in the Guinness Book of Records for having the shortest St Patrick's Day in the World. It went from one pub to the other at a crossroads. The parade was discontinued when one of the pubs closed (as theoretically without an end point the parade would have gone on for infinity - or until it reached the coast) Colm's first book Isn't It Well For Ye: The Book Of Irish Mammies was a bestseller.
