Earlier in the month, I travelled with Ronan Sheehan, at the invitation of Mannix Flynn and Maedhbh McMahon to speak at their Marathon Irish Festival at their Dialogue Cultural Space in Vyner Street, London.
Ronan is a lawyer who specialises in copyright law, as well as a writer, and he gave a talk,drawing on the tradition of Colmcille – now cited in Irish copyright law – entitled Downloading the Book of Kells. Given that we were there for the end of the Paralympics, I gave a talk on the origins of the Tailteann Games and their relation to the Greek Olympics.
Many thanks to Mannix and Maedhbh for the invite and their fabulous hospitality.
I managed to finish a second draft of my children’s novel. All fingers are crossed.
In case any long-suffering friends are reading this, including my agent (hi, Lisa) my long-term work, a personal take on Irish history, is ongoing, and I’m now almost up to 1800. Just another 200 years to go.
My big news, discovered some time over the summer, and as I have plastered over the front page, is that two of my novels are now on Kindle and in the iBook Store.
I don’t have access to the iBook Store but here are the links to Amazon.
New Both books are also on the Apple iBookstore
