April 5, 2017, 4.52 pm - The last time Gary wore a suit he was in Court 5 receiving a sentence to Mountjoy Prison for three and a half years. But on this occasion, he is preparing for the launch of his first book. So begins the story that almost never happened. Come join Gary as he gives the most honest account yet of "life after prison". A sometimes heartbreaking, but more often hilarious tale of humongous highs and lethal lows as Gary describes trying to "fit in", almost succumbing again to "the dreaded drink" and nearly giving up entirely.


This follow up to the best-selling Joys of Joy: Finding Myself in an Irish Prison is a tour de force of hopes and dreams and setbacks, a story that will encourage readers to never give up no matter how many times they get knocked down. From debilitating health issues to the seal of approval from a Bishop ... from the near impossible task of trying to gain employment to chatting with Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show ... from feeling constantly judged for his shameful past to being fully accepted by his peers ... from knowing how much hurt he caused his beloved mother to receiving her forgiveness and respect... and, most importantly, from being a total waster to showing that anyone can completely turn their life around! So, is there a Life After Joy? Well, jump on in and find out …
