In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince and a bogus one; they surfed together and entered a bachelor festival; the fridge was christened; and one of the pair had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland. As the days rolled by, the fridge grew into a personality in its own right, developing its own identity and bringing people together wherever it went.
"Not just brilliantly written, but far too hilarious to read alone in a public place." (The Independent)
"Round Ireland with a Fridge...is a sort of alternative Michael Palin tome and a far better read than you would expect. It is part autobiography, part travelogue, and part Guinness-addled ramblings." (Irish Times)

Stunning but beware
This book is fantastic, as it says on the cover - you shouldn't read it alone on a bus. I listened to it on a plane to Italy and laughed so hard the guy next to me asked to move!!!
This book inspired numerous stupid challenges at work, including having your picture taken by a sign with the name Shennington on it and being photographed by a soap star holding a kitchen utensil. Paddy from Emmerdale thought I was really weird when I presented him a frying pan.
Beware what this book can do to you.

I have never been to Ireland, but after reading this book I will visit. I have got to find out if the Irish are as much fun as this book suggests.
