Mark McGaugh’s memoir is a heartwarming rags to riches tale of a young Irish man born of humble beginnings throwing off the shackles and low expectations of his poverty stricken childhood to head off across the Irish Sea and make his way. Not knowing where it might take him, McGaugh spends time finding his way in London before oppoturnity comes his way. But with ambitious blood and a hard work ethic, this young man seizes the chance to turn his life around and grasps everything life in the UK has to offer him. McGaugh’s canny observations on life as a young Irish man in Britain provides a page-turning read and his story reflects that of many a young Irish men of his generation, though few rose to the dizzy heights of being a leading captain of industry in their adopted country, as McGaugh has. His journey is a classic tale of a young man making his own luck. Publication of the book has been met with great interest and Mark has been busy doing radio and press interveiws across Ireland and the UK.
