(I’m hiding under the desk working on the next book most of the time, but details of any 2017 events will be posted here.)

I had fun last year though…

September 16th, Culture Night at the Irish Writers Centre: I got my ranting hat on for the annual Soapbox event, this year in the company of Colin Barrett, Tara Flynn, Dave Rudden, Alvy Carragher, Gavin Corbett & others.

June 18th, UCD Festival: The ‘Remembering Maeve’ event was a celebration of Maeve Binchy’s life and work and it was an honour to have been asked by Gordon Snell to take part.

June 17th, Belfast Book Festival: Apparently I didn’t make a show of myself in 2015, because the nice peeps at the Belfast Book Festival asked me back again to do a reading last year, in the company of Ann O’Laughlin and Marie Louise Muir.

May 26th, Irish Times @ the Irish Writers’ Centre: The Heart of Everything was May’s Irish Times Book Club Choice. During the month  a series of articles and interviews explored different aspects of the book, ending with a live podcast recording in the Irish Writers’ Centre on Thursday May 26th.

Previous events include: ILF Dublin, the Ennis Book Club Festival, the Dublin Festival of History, the Dublin Book Festival, and the West Belfast Arts Festival.
