Near FM Radio Interview:
Great to take part in our first Literature Festival over the weekend in the very appropriately named ‘Hinterland Festival‘ in Kells, Co. Meath. We were there to introduce our recently launched book ‘Hello Hinterland‘ to the many local passers-by and enjoy some discussions of all things Hinterland, including their connections to the areas that the book features.
We set up shop outside Kells Credit Union in the centre of the town and met some lovely people over the weekend, including the Meath Kells Scouts, who were raising funds for a little boy called Milo, festival organiser Heather Hamill and Antonia Daly and her team from Antonia’s Bookstore, who kindly included our book Hello Hinterland in the festival pop-up bookshop.
We were delighted that Hello Hinterland got mentioned in an article about upcoming Irish poets in the Dublin Inquirer recently…

We are excited for the long-awaited launch event of the poetry book Hello Hinterland at Hodges Figgis on Dawson Street, Dublin 2 at 6pm this evening.
