Lovely responses my essay ‘Sixteen’ on RTÉ Radio 1 last night – a rare occasion where I read something myself. Covering education, the Troubles, escaping into the arts, the arts and class, sexuality and returning home.
The essay is from the anthology ‘Impermanence’ commissioned by Centre Culturel Irlandais, and edited by Nora Hickey M’Sichili & Neil Hegarty published by No Alibis Press. Recordings beautifully produced by Cliodhna Ni Anluain.
There’s a a great chat beforehand and the essay lasts about 20 mins. Click : https://www.rte.ie/radio/radio1/clips/11512834/
