Round Ireland With a Fridge by Tony Hawks


‘I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitch hike round the circumference of Ireland, with a fridge, within one calendar month’

A foolhardy attempt to win a drunken bet led to Tony Hawks having one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty travelling companion-cum-domestic appliance he found himself in the midst of a remarkable, inspirational and at times, down right silly adventure.
In their month of madness Tony and his fridge surfed together, entered a batchelor festival, and one of them had sex without the other knowing. The fridge got christened and they even met the poorest King on Earth.
As they travelled through Donegal, Sligo, Galway, Clare and beyond, the fridge became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland, growing into a personality in its own right, and bringing people together wherever it went.
Against all odds, Round Ireland With a Fridge is one of the most inspirational stories you will ever read. Join the fearless pair as they battle on towards Dublin and a breathtaking finale that is both moving, uplifting, and a fitting conclusion to the whole ridiculous affair.

Comments: This was an absolutely hilarious look at what it is like to hitch hike around Ireland with a fridge in tow. Quirky, yet profound, most of life’s lessons can be learned from the tale of Tony’s journey and his interactions with the many interesting (and sometimes odd) people he meets along the way. Reading this book lifted my spirits and left me with a distinct desire to visit Ireland. Definitely worth reading!
