My fiction and essays have appeared in The Stinging Fly, gorse and Winter Papers. I have also blogged at Where’s Grandad? and Straight off the Beach. My specialised areas are news and culture, especially film, literature and football. I speak English, Irish, French and Portuguese and I also work as a translator, proofreader and editor. Offers of commissioned work are always welcome.
