OVER one-hundred people attended the launch of Dominic McKevitt’s new book, “It Could Happen To You.”

The book launch was held in the Louth County Library recently and the author has praised the local community for their support.

“The response has been fantastic,” Dominic said, “The turnout was brilliant. The sales of the book is good at the moment, I expect that they will increase coming up to Christmas.

“Every day I am inundated with calls, texts and emails from people around the world telling me that they enjoyed the book.

“A lot of people have said that they found the book to be very funny.

“If even one person tells you that the book is good, it means all my hard work was worth it.

“It gives me great pride when I receive comments,” he added.

The book accounts Dominic’s life growing up in Ireland, primarily Dundalk, in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.

The book features different aspects of growing up, from the tragedies, poverty, schooldays, adventures, teenage years and will end with Dominic as a mature twenty-year-old.

But if you enjoy the book, do not fear, as Dominic is already writing the next instalment.

In the next instalment of the book, it will explore Dominic’s “prison nightmare” when he was locked up in Mountjoy prison in 2009 for failing to pay a dog licence.

It was later revealed how Dominic failed to receive notification of a summons in the post, which An Post later apologised for the mix-up.
