To be Honest...

By Joe Kelly

Biography & memoir | eBook

A family history and a personal memoir. Tracing the history the Kelly & Carr families over 200 years in the historic Liberties district of Dublin. From 1815 (the year of the Battle of Waterloo) to the present day, the book is about my family's history and my own journey, from working-class roots to world traveller. From Europe to the Middle East; from Thailand to Canada. It looks at my struggles as a gay man in Ireland when homosexuality was still illegal, and my alcohol dependence. It's a fascinating glimpse into 2 centuries of Irish life.

Joe Kelly was born into a working-class family in the historic Liberties area of Dublin in the mid 50s, when Ireland was a very different country. His working life has gone from accounts clerk, to waiter, to soldier and to charity worker. He is now living back in the housing estate where he grew up, and from where he draws much of his inspiration.
