See sample pages from book 2 opposite.
Book 3 in now in the making and here’s how you can help:
Feature in the next book in your hobby mode which must be unrelated to your profession. The page will include your favourite quotation or short poem.
Recommend someone else who has an interesting or unusual past-time.
Become a sponsor by pre-ordering any number of books in advance at €30 each,(payment to Make-A-Wish Ireland, details below). Donors of €1000 or more will be listed in the book as a sponsor. This money is used to pay for the printing of the books so there is no cost to the charity and all proceeds from the book sales go directly to the charity.
No fees are taken by the photographer Dominic Lee or by the book designer Vladimir Polivanov at Priory Studios. We do not hire the services of a publisher, a book distributor or a bookshop as their total fees can amount to over 80% of the sale price. The number of books the sponsors receive will depend on delivery cost versus collection.
Some of the participants in book 3 include:
Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones), Miriam O’Callaghan (Radio & TV presenter), Jeffrey Archer (Author, former politician, and peer of the realm), Bruce Beresford (Australian Film Director, he won an Oscar for ‘Driving Miss Daisy’), Catherine Corless (Historian – Tuam Babies), Brian Ormond (TV presenter), Fr. Peter McVerry (McVerry Trust), Lady Helen Wogan (Widow of Sir Terry Wogan). Lorraine & Seóirse Bodley (Composer), Dora & Ken Howard R.A. (Painter), Brian Kennedy (Singer), Dr. Niamh Murphy, Rev. Ann-Marie O’Farrell, Caroline Smurfit, Chris Pearson (UK), Damien Top (Tenor – France), Eddie Rowley (Sunday World), Neil Orpen (UK surgeon), Noel Cunningham (Harvey’s Point Hotel). Osgur Breatnach, Jim Fitzpatrick (Artist), Ray Darcy (RTE), Tony Smurfit (Smurfit Kappa), Liam Cunningham (Actor – Game of Thrones), Robert Ballagh (Artist) and many more.
Sorry, you’ll have to buy the book to discover what their hobbies are!
