Born in 1953 in County Armagh I have always had a great interest in Irish folklore, tales, and history. In recent years I have had 3 books of Short stories published i.e. 2Across the Sheugh”, “Tall Tales and Sort Stories”, and “Quare old Times”. They all can be purchased through Amazon and make good reading, even if I say so myself.

Being a lifelong student of Irish history I recently got involved in writing about the Great Famine/Genocide in Ireland from 1845 to 1850. I believe it is an area of Irish history too often glossed over by historians, especially in America and Britain. As a member of the facebook group “Ireland Before, During and After the Famine Times” and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more.
