Ross Oâ€™Carroll-Kelly is the fictional creation of one of Irelands best-known journalists Paul Howard. Paul has five books of Ross to his credit, all best sellers. This is his first venture into the field of audio.
Through Paulâ€™s creative genius Ross has his own column every week in Irelands Sunday Tribune newspaper. The column is a huge success and is now one of the highlights for Sunday morning readers
Ross, a twenty something lives in the comfortable leafy suburbs of south Dublin. He has access to lots of cash (his fathers) and has no time for lesser mortals, ie people who live on the northside. This attitude is something he inherited from both parents.
Work is a dirty word. He does however run a nightclub â€œLiliesâ€. This he does not consider work as it feeds his insatiable appetite for the fairer sex .His only other passion is to play rugby for Leinster but even he knows this can never happen but he can always dream.
He has a son Ronan from an earlier mission across the river Liffey when he knew no better. Ronan is 8 years old and very street-wise. Ross is now married to â€œsave the whaleâ€ Sorcha. They have a baby daughter Honor
Life seems good for Ross until the term â€œpaternity suitâ€ enters his vocabulary. This little matter raises its head on the run up to Christmas. Hence twelve nightmarish days. How can he face his wife, his other girlfriends, and his fathering law!
The Roll of Ross is played by Risteaed Cooper, one of Irelands best-known TV and radio comedy actors and is supported by a host of Irish talent.
So popular has the â€œRossâ€ character become that his strong south Dublin accent can be heard in every bar across the country! You have been warned!
