I like to write a few articles in my free time. Some have been published and some have not. Most of the articles are Ireland related and generally of a historical or cultural nature.
I may be contacted through the email on this site.

Marie Antoinette and Dingle
This unassuming Georgian house in Dingle was refurbished inside in the French style in preparation for an important guest-Marie Antoinette. It was one of several plans to free the royal family and a Kerryman had a ship waiting to take her to Dingle. Everything was planed and the jailers had been bribed, but she she refused to leave her family. For more see page 107 of Fadó-Tales of Lesser Known Irish History.
