About the Narrators

MALACHY MCCOURT was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1931, but grew up in Limerick, Ireland. He returned to the United States at the age of 20 where he says he "did a bit of dishwashing, long-shoring, military service, bartending, stage acting, and saloon owning." His greatest achievement of all is his 51-year marriage to his wife, Diana, who has blessed him with five children and eight grandchildren.

Ray Porter has garnered two Audie nominations as well as several Earphones Awards and enthusiastic reviews for his sparkling narration of audiobooks. A fifteen-year veteran of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, he has also appeared in numerous films and television shows.
