A remarkable new book by St Brigid's man, Frank Russell   18/03/2021

Motivated by what to do in the latest Covid19 lock down I have just self published a book of memories and pictures entitled: "Air, Sea and Land Memories -----a pilot revisits''. Sure enough , while two of the stories tell of Blanchardstown and Castleknock in the 1950's, others cover my involvement in Air Corps missions, both Air Ambulance and Search and Rescue...............with some interesting outcomes where even the old Greyhound Bar gets a mention!  Cancer survival is also written about. However, my stories are not all confined to Ireland, it's a big world out there and I tried to capture a tiny flavour of it for posterity.

The book will be available on Thursday at Hayes Print, Ennistymon, Co Clare. You can contact them on 065-7071125 with your name and address/ credit card details. Cost is 20 euro, postage is extra. All the proceeds of this book's sale will be donated to the LARCC Cancer Support Centre ( in Multyfarnham, Co Westmeath.........of which I am a Co-Founder. The ongoing support of cancer patients is even more critical in these lock down days, as we know.

Feel free to send this email to your own contacts as I don't have a marketing budget. Every little helps!

Slán and thank you for your support, Frank Russell.
