Cornflakes for Dinner, an Evening with Aidan Comerford                            

Thursday 4th of October / 7pm / Celbridge Community Library

A chance to meet and listen to Aidan Comerford read from his popular book Cornflakes for Dinner. Aidan will explore his experience of writing a memoir and much like his book, have a few laughs along the way.

Aidan Comerford’s book Cornflakes for Dinner - a heartbreaking comedy about family life, was published in 2017, by Gill Books. It is a warm and witty memoir about raising two daughters on the autistic spectrum, with his wife, Martha, who suffers from chronic depression and a sleep disorder. He is a former musical comedian, and will still perform, if provoked. In 2014 he won the coveted "So You Think You're Funny?" award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2015 he performed at the Montreal "Just for Laughs" festival. He also performed his songs as part of the hit Irish stage show, "Singlehood." He is originally from Carlow town, but now lives in Ashbourne, Co. Meath.
