Paul Kimmage has quit his role as Brian O' Driscoll's ghostwriter for the Irish centre's upcoming autobiography. No reason has been given for Kimmage's decision to resign.

Alan English, the editor of the Limerick Leader, has been appointed in his place. English has previously penned Stand Up And Fight, an account of Munster's victory over the All Blacks in 1978.

The publishers, Penguin, have released this statement.

 

Penguin Ireland regretfully accepts the resignation of Paul Kimmage as ghost-
writer on this project.

Alan English says, ‘I am delighted to work with Brian on his autobiography. It is a

privilege to work with such a talented, professional Irish sportsman.’

Brian O’Driscoll says, ‘I have enjoyed working with Paul over the last few years

and it is unfortunate that we cannot complete this project together. However, I

look forward to working with Alan.’

Michael McLoughlin, Managing Director, Penguin Ireland says, ‘I would like

to thank Paul Kimmage for the hard work he has put into this project. We are

delighted that Alan English has stepped in to write what is the most eagerly

awaited sports autobiography for many years. Alan is somebody we have worked

with closely on two previous books and we are sure he will do Brian’s story

justice.’
