LOVELY THINGS


BABY JUNO

I've been shortlisted in the Irish round-up for the European Prize for Literature along with fellow Irish authors Karen Gillece, Alison Jameson, Philip Ó Ceallaigh, Pádraig Ó Gallachóir and Stephen Price. See The Irish Times here.

Our baby girl Juno was born Thursday night at 11.20pm. A beautiful baby sister for the boys. All's well.
