Best known as ‘Winnie McGoogan’ in her brother Brendan’s successful BBC sitcom, ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’, Eilish comes into her own here with this reflective look on an eventful life that includes a strict Catholic upbringing, two failed marriages and coming out as a lesbian at the age of 50.
While poignant and deeply moving it is also packed with humour. A 1950’s baby, and the ninth of ten children, she describes her childhood with affection and good humour. Her discovery that she was a lesbian is also tenderly handled with good humour. The end result is a warm, witty triumph that joyously celebrates being true to yourself.
