Emu Ink launch TV producer’s debut novel

Emu Ink officially launched Cabra Cadabra, which is written by former RTÉ sports journalist and broadcaster Eamonn Donohoe.

The book is centred around Gary, a former member of the Magic Society who turned his back on his favourite pastime after a devastating act of betrayal. His life thereafter, veered off course and Gary became a shy, self-loathing character whose only social saviour is his best friend Collie.

Together, the two men bring out the best in each other and, despite not knowing each other’s darkest secrets, a shared passion for “beer, birds, and Bohemian FC,” is all they need to keep natural humour and dry wit alive.

Writer Eamonn Donohoe is also a producer who now works for BBC Scotland. He said of the book:

“I’m really proud to be launching Cabra Cadabra. I’ve had the voices and some of the characters in my head for quite a while and it was really exciting to commit it to print… It’s been a difficult but fun adventure over the last three years, taking it from a blank page to a finished article and I hope people enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.”

Emu Ink Publisher, Emer Cleary said:

Cabra Cadabra is a fantastically-written novel, which includes some very unique and loveable characters. The writing is funny and clever but also sensitive, where necessary. Eamonn is a talented author whose work will be a very welcome addition to bookshelves everywhere.”

Cabra Cadabra is a bluntly-comedic, heart-warming tale of self-discovery, hope and recovery. It is available from Emu Ink here.
