I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…

The Launch!

 INVITE:

 To the launch of my book,

Notes on the Past Imperfect,

at the Writers’ Centre, Parnell square,

on Wednesday, May 16. at 6.30 p m.

A taste of wine, drop o’ water, bit o’ craic

and a signed copy if you’re good –

good at forking out…

Sean.

“I was really struck by the sheer originality…

I have read nothing like it and probably never will.”

                                            – Martin Hogan.

 

The Good Fellas… Little and Large?.. My choice as guest speaker… ‘Know JJQ over the years… Staunch.

Signing… Signing… Where are they all coming from?.. A veritable traffic jam in Parnell square…

When you’ve written something you haven’t, you’ve written only the first draft…

Sara Unveiled!.. All the way from Blackrock, Dundalk, with her three weens, God love them. Sara Walsh, the last of the line, my youngest niece… I gave her away on her wedding day, talked the talk after at the reception. Yeah!

Sorry? What?!

The Signing… People just kept coming… Up the steps, up the stairs… Unending…

Joanna and aunt Patricia…

Sister Celine with lifelong friend…

“Sixty years… so long ago?.. Seems like yesterday…” Thus began Master Class – which I shared with the gathering on the night…

 

“He was supposed to talk about me – instead he went on and on about this brilliant, honest, courageous scribe that he knew of old!..”

John Quinn and Bridin Gilroy – RTE alumni.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Sure I forgot half of what I                   intended to say…

 

Sean scribe, Ann wife, Joanna daughter…

Wee 4; Zoe, Joanna, Larry and Kelly o’Byrne

Fans – to a man!

Simon Murtagh, my grand nephew.

(Did I get that right?)

He breezed in and I welcomed him

with open arms…

A faithful few…

Da, Ma and Doc. Dr Sean Gilroy, my very own G P. Wonderful medico but more than that, a darlin’ man. And a crack photographer, to boot. All the photos above, his handiwork…
