Tony Macaulay is a bestselling author, leadership consultant, peacebuilder, broadcaster and suicide prevention advocate from Northern Ireland. I realised that this glowing commendation from Oul’ Mac would be hard to live up to but I was very ambitious and determined to continue my climb up the employment ladder. I truly believe there are youngsters in the communities I came from who have raw talent that maybe hasn’t yet been discovered and I would love to see them getting opportunities like these. A tiny crumb on the streets of a city still feeding off ancient rivalries, that were well past their sell-by date.

The King is dead - and even Big Duff, the hardest loyalist hard man on the whole estate has been seen to shed a tear. They design distinctive home and kitchenware that is sure to turn your friends green with envy, no matter which of the colours you choose. TONY Macaulay's first bestselling memoir Paperboy spawned a terrific musical with music by Duke Special and words by Andrew Doyle which had two sell-out runs in Belfast.There's A Place For Us streamed out and the cast's voices seemed most confident when singing about the Jets and the Sharks. There’s also a nod to West Side Story in the musical, where Tony gets to revisit a stage show he appeared in while a pupil at Belfast Royal Academy. Directed by Steven Dexter and Dean Johnson with particularly creative use of the crowd barriers in the second act, Breadboy showed what life in that time and this place was like.

Although Leslie was almost completely without sin, he did have one serious weakness – he loved a good gossip almost as much as Big Aggie in our street.And, to ensure their products always give superb service, every item is rigorously tested before being approved for the high-technology production line. I was a wee good livin’ fella who went to grammar school and everyone knew I had been an exemplary paperboy. I suppose he had to do something to pass the time when he wasn’t serving bread or at church or at meetings in the Orange hall. on my first Saturday, I nodded knowingly, but inside I was thinking, ‘How am I going to get up at six o’clock every Saturday morning? While Paperboy was set in 1975 when the author had just turned 12 and had bagged himself a new job selling the Belfast Telegraph, Breadboy takes place in 1977.

In a remote village nestling between the beautiful hills of Rwanda, the reconciled survivors and perpetrators of genocide told me they would pray for my land, that the walls that still divide our hearts and our streets would one day be torn down forever. Tony Macaulay captures life in Belfast in the late 1970s with such accuracy and humour that every page is great read, although it does help if you've grown up in Northern Ireland yourself. TONY MACAULAY grew up at the top of the Shankill Road in Belfast, an experience which has shaped his life, and about which he has written in Paperboy and Breadboy.And all of this under cover and protected from the ever-present Belfast rain and the odd stone or brick outside. No one in Belfast could survive without the sustenance of a sliced white pan loaf and a ready supply of potato bread. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The Breadboy has discreet ventilation holes at the back to allow air circulation and for excess moisture to escape. Tony's school was putting on West Side Story and he vied for the lead with his rival in romance, tall, English Tim (Sam Downey).
