About the Author
Patrick McCartney's family has been in business in Rossnew, a small Irish town, for more than one hundred years. Now Patrick finds himself at the helm at a time when the country is in deep recession – a recession he believes was caused by greedy bankers, dishonest developers and corrupt politicians. His bankers have called in his loans and are putting pressure on him to pay up. This is an impossible task. To Patrick, it seems that the bad guys always win. So, he devises a cunning plan to hand over his business to the bank to settle his loans and at the same time extract full market value for his business from the bank.

Irish author Dermot Coburn's medium of choice is the short story. His stories revolve around a rich tapestry of timeless characters and their adventures in modern Ireland. Coburn lives with his family in Ravensdale, an idyllic village nestling along the southern slopes of Clermont Mountain in County Louth where he is a well known entrepreneur and businessman.
McCartneys of Rossnew is the story of an Irish businessman who decides that he's had enough of the bullying and the carpetbagging-like behaviour of the banks in the aftermath of the great modern Irish depression. A law-abiding citizen all his life, the perfect plan begins to form and develop in his mind. It's devious but it's only in his dreams until, suddenly, everything falls into place and he is faced with an irresistable opportunity. McCartneys of Rossnew really is a guilty pleasure and a very satisfying read.
