BLOODY MARY – MY STORY: Mary Coughlan

SAT  BLARNEY BOOKS & ART  3:00 – 4:00pm
Hosted by Paul Petran


In this funny, moving and typically outspoken memoir, Ireland’s best-loved jazz singer pulls no punches in getting to the heart of what made Mary so contrary. As she tells her story with a ribald, running commentary on the highs and lows of celebrity culture, we get to experience an alternative evolution of Ireland in the 70’s and 80’s, populated with hippies, rock stars and movie moguls, and one wild Irish girl determined to live a life less ordinary.
