This Construction Life is the story of an Irishman born into the world of construction, living on the edge and making lemonade when things go wrong!
The experiences and adventures of a lifetime spent in the building industry in Ireland, London and Poland – the great, the bold, the fearless, the brazen and the despicable – based on true events in a life lived to the full.
Characters and comedy, scuffles and scrapes, the highs and lows of life in an hourglass – an insight into things that ordinary people don’t see and the lessons learned along the way.
“I wrote the book to humour, entertain, and educate the reader about construction past and present, characters and life experiences.” Patrick Butler.
The book will be available to purchase from Amazon on August 5th.
We also have a limited number of review copies available to people in exchange for a review, media interview or feature about the book.
