Visiting Ardoyne Library


I’ll be returning to Ardoyne Library during Book Week NI. This library was where I would hide from the streets of Ardoyne – the bullies and The Troubles. It’s where I indulged my love for books, as we had none in our house, and I don’t know what I would have done without it! Come along if you can.


Number 1 in the Charts!

Stephen Nolan
Wow! What an honour. Thanks to The Stephen Nolan Show making The Good Son Book Club Choice of the Month on BBC Radio in conjunction with (and thanking especially for all their support) Libraries NI – it was the most borrowed adult fiction title from libraries across Northern Ireland in September.

This was an event I did for Libraries NI last month

Here’s to libraries!

Biggest Book Group in the Country Reads The Good Son

The Biggest Book Club in the Country is back with Paul McVeigh’s ‘The Good Son’

Stephen Nolan

So the Stephen Nolan in Ireland has chosen The Good Son as its latest read. I went into the BBC studio in Belfast to record a few minutes and you can head over and listen to it here.

Thanks to Pedro Hughes and Libraries NI too for recommending The Good Son.

This was me in Stephen Nolan’s chair recording the extract- I got a kick out of that.


You can join in by getting one of the 300 copies of the book that are being sent around libraries in NI or buy it here…  or below.
