Autumn Winter 2016


I’m mostly back in my writing bunker and there won’t be anything to show for that for a while, aside from clumps of my own hair as I tear them out. But there are a few appearances coming up:

October 5 I’m giving a Headstuff Lecture. Mine is called “Can Anybody See Me”. Tickets available here.

October 17 myself and Alison Spittle are running a fun gig of non-judgement called The Facts Of Choice where people can laugh but also hear facts from real life experts on the pro choice movement. SOLD OUT.

October 21, I’ll be on Newstalk Drive for Good Week Bad Week.

October 23, I’m part of an amazing Kick Up The Arts panel at Whelan’s as part of Lingo Festival. Panti Bliss and Blindboy Boatclub, no less!

November 8, I’m delighted to be taking part in The Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment‘s talk here. If you missed out on Facts of Choice – or even if you didn’t – why not come along to this?

November 12, Launch at the Mansion House, Dublin, of a fantastic new anthology of Irish writing in aid of the Simon Community. “Looking At The Stars” is available to order here. My piece in it is called “Castles”.

My books Giving Out Yards and You’re Grand are in shops now.

And you can read me every week at Headstuff, or once a month in Irish Tatler.

Thanks for reading.
