Location icon Ireland

I have worked as a freelance journalist and column, writing about cultural and social issues, travel, current affairs and foreign affairs, with a particular interest in Nordic/Scandinavian news. I write in both English and Irish Gaelic.

My non-fiction book, The Irish Outlander (MKB Publishing, 2018) explores the meaning of home to the Irish abroad, and my third book, Yesterdates, is due for release in . Autumn 2019. In April 2013, I launched EILE Magazine, an online publication for the LGBT community in Ireland. I worked for various media organizations in Ireland and the UK, including RTÉ Radio, BBC Northern Ireland and Gaelscéal. I've also written for other publications in Ireland, the UK, Denmark and the United States.

An bhfuil dearmad á dhéanamh ag na meáin ar an domhan mór?

'Tá na meáin anseo ag éirí leisciúil; ag díriú isteach orthu féin, agus dearmad á dhéanamh acu ar an domhan mór. Tá níos lú tuairisceoirí thar lear acu. Seachas scéalta móra ar nós Trump nó an Bhreatimeachta, is cuma leo faoi scéalta an domhain. Ní gnáthnós é sin anseo, agus is cúis imní é sin dom."

Speaking Irish in England brings me home

For many Irish people abroad, a familiar face or accent can be a major comfort. When I hear an Irish accent here in England, there's a certain comfort in its familiarity, and I might be curious to know more about the person speaking.

Male Rape: The Resilient Taboo

Peter* is sitting down in an empty university classroom on a sunny afternoon. Although he starts off describing what happened to him in a very matter-of-fact tone, his words slowly become heavier with emotion, all while he holds himself.

The UUP: Ulster's Unexpected Progressives?

Whenever a political party's annual conference takes place, one can look forward to nothing but speeches, applause at regular intervals, speeches, workshops, goody bags filled with pens and branded notebooks, and maybe a speech. It's like Christmas for politicos, and last week's UUP Annual Party Conference at Belfast's Ramada Hotel was no different.

Ról an Bhróid

Dá suífeá síos in aon chaifé ar Botanic Avenue, seans go mbeadh beirt leaids amach faoi choinne. Ní eisceacht é beagán rómáns idir bheirt fhear nó bheirt bhean a fheiceáil sa chathair a thuilleadh, agus ní mór do ghlúin aerach na linne seo a bhuíochas a ghabháil leo siúd a shiúil ag Belfast Pride thar na blianta don saoirse sin.

Kool København

Tagann an logainm København ó Købemændshavn - Cuan na gCeannaitheoirí - agus ba é sin go díreach céard a bhí i gceist leis an gcathair álainn seo - margadh iontach d'éinne ag iarraidh roinnt rudaí a cheannach ar saoire!

Réalta Réicivíc

Caitheann Scott De Buitléir súil ar cheann de na forbairtí ailtireachta is suntasaí san Eoraip, Harpa, ceoláras álainn na hÍoslainne. Is féidir le ceol daoine a bhailiú le chéile, agus tiocfaidh daoine ó na ceithre hairde chuig ceoláras má tá an áit agus a cuid léirithe ar chaighdeán maith go leor.

Oscar Pistorius agus an dráma réaltachta

Ach le teacht ré seo na réalteachta, tháinig doiléiriú ar an líne idir céard is bréagach ann agus céard is fíor ann ar ár scáileáin, agus is cosúil anois nach dtuigeann muid an difríocht eatarthu a thuilleadh. Bíonn muid ar thóir an chéad chlár cháiliúil eile, agus tá seans ann go bhfuil sé aimsithe againn - trí thimpiste.
