Welcome

Mooch around, by all means - that's what it's here for!

Music

Music

I write on many topics under the pop culture banner, as well as interview quite a few famous (and not so well known) rock stars and pop stars, and those aspiring to be. I also review albums, gigs and music-related books. Most of my writing in this area appears in The Irish Times. To read selections by all means visit the Music Section.
Travel

Travel

I'm lucky enough to travel occasionally to near and far flung outposts of the world, where I stay in some wonderful hotels, eat in some brilliant restaurants, and experience some amazing cultures. Most of my writing in this area appears in Cara magazine and The Irish Times. To read selections please visit the Travel Section.
Film

Film

Occasionally, I interview extremely well known film stars (and some directors), primarily for Cara magazine. Sitting down with the likes of Cate Blanchett, Cillian Murphy, Pierce Brosnan, Saoirse Ronan, Neil Jordan, Aiden Gillen, Billy Bob Thornton, Anjelica Huston, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Glenn Close and Colin Farrell - well, what's not to love? To read selections do not hesitate to visit the Film Section.
Writing & Writers

Writing & Writers

Now and again I talk to well known authors, as well as writing about myself and my life. I appreciate you might not be bothered about the latter, but if you're into the former, please visit the Writing & Writers Section.


"Just before our love got lost you said, ‘I am as constant as a northern star’, and I said, ‘Constantly in the darkness? Where’s that at? If you want me I’ll be in the bar.’” (Joni Mitchell, A Case of You)
