BBC Radio 4’s Open Book has Lisa McInerney discussing religion in the modern Irish novel. Her segment starts around 10.27 minutes and its a great listen – not just because ‘The Good Son’ gets a good mention in some fine company.
Fundraising Event in Kinvara
A wonderful event last night to raise funds for the old courthouse in Kinvara. Thanks to the generosity of writers Sarah Clancy, Lisa Quackinerney and N Ní Chonchúir who gave their time and talent to the help the local community here. You are amazing. And so I say good-bye to Kinvara and head home to Brighton. Thank you to Kinvara for having me and Liadain O’Donovan whose generosity I accepted in coming to Kinvara to get space to write. I’m so lucky to have a life where the currency is kindness and generosity. I think it’s going to be a good year.
