Congratulatons to New Inn based game hunter and biolgist Dr Douglas Butler on the publication of his latest book with Merlin Unwin.

Titled, The Sporting Gun’s Bedside Companion, it is Butler’s third book in just six years.

This book constitutes a break from the author’s previous genre in that it is the first time he has written a collection of short stories.

Apart from the twenty two short stories penned by Butler himself, there are eight guest contributions from his shooting companions.

The book which is published in hardback is 185 pages in length. Full of humorous stories many of them south Tipperary based, the book is a wonderful read. It can be purchased in Clonmel bookshops.
