Brendan McDonald

Laois man Brendan McDonald is the author of  the debut children’s book 'Elephant on the Farm'. Brendan is from a farming background in South Laois and complied the book during lockdown.

"I went to University of Limerick (UL) to study law, qualifying as a solicitor in Kildare before going in-house and joining IDA Ireland in 2012. In 2017 I became Regional Business Development Manager in the South East and I got the opportunity to move back to Carlow just 15 minutes from the home Farm”

Crumlin Hospital Connection

20% of net profits from the sale of the book will be donated to Crumlin Hospital. Brendan’s godson, Tommy spent a short time attending Crumlin a couple of years ago and wanted to make a donation from sales of the book" Brendan said. To view Brendan's work in our shop, simply click here.
