Rory’s legendary, much-missed dad. At the beginning of the stories, Rory knows nothing about him. In Book Two, he discovers that, aged 23, his dad was two times Ireland Rally Driving Champion. In Book Three, though, he discovers that – aged 29, Padder Branagan – had NOT been Ireland Rally Driving Champion, for several years, and his driving skills brought him to the attention of another group – Ireland’s criminals. Which is what lead to all the incidents that lie behind the Rory Branagan adventures.
