Brian & Bessie’s Story, written and illustrated by Brian Owens, is based on happy memories of the long holidays Brian spent with his granny in Ballyharty around the time of the Second World War. Brian loved the sea, the fishing and all he experienced in Ballyharty and Kilmore Quay. The lovely happy story which is beautifully illustrated was originally written for grandchildren but has captured the hearts of adults reminding them of times past and innocent childhood.
