Hello. Thanks for dropping by.
June was an eventful one, with appearances at the Cat Laughs, Cork Midsummer Festival doing an event with Louise O’Neill and Blindboy’s live podcast. This week I interviewed the wonderful Marian Keyes at the Irish Writers’ Centre. Had a great post-repeal talk in London Irish Centre, where I gave a lecture (and sang) about shame. I read Molly from Ulysses for Bloomsday and wasn’t a bit scared (I was bricking it, yes I was yes). Got an invite to the Pres’s Res for a celebration of a hundred years of suffrage and got to pet his dogs. That was a very cool, hot day at the Áras.
July’s Irish Tatler is out, with a piece about my cool, minimalist summer look. (*cough*)
I did this interview for the Irish Examiner. Thanks to Ciara McDonnell for asking me to chat.
My new book, Rage-In, launched in Dublin and in Cork and there were other interviews to go along with that. It hit the Irish non-fiction bestsellers list. Thanks to everyone who came and to every single person who bought a copy. It’s thankfully had nice reviews in both the Irish Times and Irish Independent.
I’m now going to take a few weeks for a bit private time. But, BUT, only a bit. I’ll be back onstage July 29th for Vodafone Comedy Festival, MCing a great lineup of acts. Come! Book here.
So, see you soon. Have a great July. Wear lots of sunscreen and drink lots of water. Maybe put on a hat if you like hats.
