Sally Rooney, Louis de Paor, Professor Pat Dolan of NUI Galway and Rita Ann Higgins also in the house. They do really great work around issues of empathy. Find out more here



The last scheduled reading from NOTIONS was at The Limerick Literary Festival on February 22nd 2020. My sincere thanks to everyone who came along to this or any of the NOTIONS readings throughout 2019. My gratitude also to the curators and staff of these events - both for the invitation and for the good times. A particular word of thanks to those fine people with whom I appeared as part of a double act - Loah, Martin Hayes, Tishani Doshi, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Emilie Pine, Erin Fornoff, Moyra Donaldson, Gerard Smyth, Gabriel McArdle & David Mitchell. It was a very special honour to be invited to read at Borris, along with Paul Muldoon, by the T.S. Eliot Foundation. Thanks also to everyone at the Seamus Heaney HomePlace.

It was also a great honour to be painted by Julian Friers.
