About the Author

Rashers Tierney is an itinerant lecturer and anthropologist of note, presenting seminars across North America on all things Irish. His earth-shattering PhD thesis on “Flatulence in Finnegan’s Wake” has been hailed as the work that “blew apart” the clique-ish inner circle of Joycean scholarship. He is currently at work on a study entitled “Brogue mo thoin,” a controversial volume on the connections between the ancient Irish craft of shoemaking and renowned Gaelic curses.
