“The Nor’n Irn Joke Book” comes packed with yarns and stories that could only come from Northern Ireland. The craic is ninety and it’s a laugh a minute as an Ulsterman tries getting a taxi in London, the cats are screekin al night, or the Dactor taking the pliers to the patient.

A Causeway Press spokesperson said: “All our previous humour books proved to be very popular with the Ulster public whether at home or for the ex-pat but one of the outstanding features in the books are the ‘Ulsterisms’. The sayings that we all hear and love so well but an outsider is left baffled and needs an explanation. “The Nor’n Irn Joke Book” provides both.

It’s packed to the gills with all sorts shapes and sizes and has arrived just in time for the Christmas market, it is the ideal stocking filler,

“The Nor’n Irn Joke Book” is available from the Larne, Carrick and Newtownabbey Times offices, telephone 028 2827 2393, 028 9335 1992 and 028 9084 3621, priced £5.99
