His memoir, published
by Mercier Press, has been well received by literary
critics who variously described it as "wonderful",
"emotive" and "inspirational".
"Written with the authentic voice of a child, this
snapshot of his young life unfolds in a series of
stories evoking the innocence of childhood, family
dynamic and tensions, street friendships and
characters, the onset of civil strife, and a family
protecting itself from conflict, with CS gas coming
in through the door and tracer bullets flying past
the windows," said a spokesperson.
The Donegal launch will take place in The Exchange,
Castle Avenue, Buncrana, on Friday, October 7, 2016
at 7pm. Everyone welcome.
