For older readers he has written three books about Danny Wilde and his Littlestown Crokes GAA team, Legends' Lair (about Charlie Stubbs and his dreams of becoming a soccer player) and one fantasy novel, Beyond the Cherry Tree. He has appeared on RTE's The Den, TV3's Ireland AM and many radio shows. He regularly holds readings in bookshops and libraries around the country.

 

'This book is a great choice for boys and girls who are just starting to read for themselves and like a funny story.'

Irish Independent Irish Independent

'O’Brien’s characteristic mix of adventure, humour and celebration of the natural environment, together with Texier’s complementary black and white drawings, should particularly appeal to boys of between 6 and 8, and to reluctant readers of up to 10. The book is beautifully produced: colourful hardback covers, large print, short chapters, which are guaranteed to give young readers a sense of achievement, and endpapers with a superb map of the wonderful world of Alfie Green.'

Inis Magazine Inis Magazine

'Action-packed, full of fantasy and fun and will strike a chord with all boys who have ever played conkers with their friends.'
