Currach Press, 2006 - 223 páginas
There Might be a Drop of Rain Yet is the story of the conflict between a young man growing up in Ireland in the 1950s and his very orthodox Catholic and patriotic mother. He eventually escapes her and the Irish censor and moves to a more liberal England, becomes involved in left-wing politics and is imprisoned for Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament activities. His own country recedes as he achieves his dreams of becoming a journalist and a racing driver.
But he returns to a fast-changing Ireland when his mother falls ill. A bond is established between them and, before her death, she reveals a long-hidden family secret - the reason for her antipathy to all things British.
The memoir includes accounts of meetings with such diverse characters as Brendan Behan, Bertrand Russell and Ayrton Senna and, back in Dublin, records the end of the era which died with his mother and her favourite newspaper, the Irish Press.
