The second book in a trilogy, although it can stand alone. The setting is a working class neighborhood in Dublin. This is an entertaining story which follows the often hard life of a widow with seven children. Irish humor is abundant.

This is a wonderful series. It is a hilarious and, at times, sad account of a family growing up in inner-city Dublin. The characters are wonderfully unique and just plain fun to read about.
I plan on searching for more books by this author.
There are three books in this series:
1. The Mammy
2. The Chisellers
3. The Granny

A continuation of "The Mammy" trilogy - this book is excellent! Funny, heartwarming, and rousing - all in one. It's a survival story as well as a laugh-out-loud story, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A sometimes funny, sometimes sad, pseud-history of an Irish family.
Many stereotypes, but much wisdom and laughter.
Am looking forward to the sequels. The author has the ability to introduce the characters in such a way thet ayou want to know more about each one.
I thoroughly enjoyed it!

A continuation of the story started in O'Carroll's first installment "The Mammy" which tells of mundane and miraclously funny
existence of a poor family in a not so long ago Dublin

The Chisellers opens in 1970, with the widow Agnes Browne still struggling to raise her brood (the chisellers of the title) alone, although the broad-shouldered Mark is now an apprentice carpenter and Rory, his gay brother, is an apprentice hair stylist. Agnes may be too caught up in her exciting bingo win of 310 pounds to notice that little Dermot is developing a dangerous taste for shoplifting, but she frequently wrings her hands over Frankie, a neo-Nazi thug who has been expelled from school.

If you read The Mammy this is not to be missed! About what happens (next) to Agnus Browne's kids. Very enjoyable read

this middle book provokes emotions, as did the 1st.
I read the 3rd book before this one and wish I had waited and read them in order, as I am the type who does not read the synopies on jackets.
I like to be engaged in the story. Knowing what has occurred ruins the stories for me.

Uneven and amateurish, this story of an Irish family in 1970s Dublin has one or two memorable scenes, but is mostly peopled by dimensionless characters moving through clichéd situations. The truly jaw-dropping thing about this book is that it's listed as the second in a trilogy.

This book is part of the wonderfully funny Agnes Browne series. This series is about a mom and her children in 1960's working class Ireland. Every book in the series is great. I recommend all 4 of them!

After reading The Mammy, knew I had to read the Chisellers & The Granny. All three books are a real delight. Quick, easy & fun to read.
