  1. Dear Mr O’Shea,

    You are invited to join us on 26 October 2017 at the James Joyce Centre from 6.30pm for the launch of BLOODROOT, the debut collection of poetry by Annemarie Ni Churreain. BLOODROOT is being launched by Doire Press with support from the Arts Council of Ireland.

    “In this remarkable debut collection, Ní Churreain bears witness to the lived experiences of women, including those Irish women who for too long have been overlooked and silenced; women like Ann Lovett, Joanne Hayes, and the many nameless, disregarded women who lived lives of imprisonment within Irish Institutions; women whose stories are haunted by the ever present spectre of the patriarchal Irish State. Ní Churreain’s poems both captivate and challenge” –Dr. Sinéad Kennedy, Department of English, Maynooth University. Secretary of Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment

    “A work of muscle and grit, of vision and clarity, Bloodroot is truly exceptional. Among the strongest debut collections of the decade” –Doireann Ní Ghríofa

    Annemarie is a Donegal poet based in Dublin. She has been awarded prestigious literary fellowships by Jack Kerouac House (Florida), Akademie Schloss Solitude (Germany), Hawthornden Castle (Scotland). In 2016, she was awarded a Next Generation Artists Award by President Michael D. Higgins on behalf of the Arts Council of Ireland. She is a co-founder of the Upstart collective and a member of the Writers In Prisons Scheme.

    Annemarie is now available for interview, and BLOODROOT is available in print and as a pdf for review. Should you be interested in covering the launch or the book, please drop me an email for further information.

    If you would like, I can send you a Press Release, E-Invite and Publicity Images (bio pic and book jacket) on request. Please let me know if you would like any additional information. We would be delighted to speak with you.


  2. therickoshea,

    OK, I used to be Instagram-”big”, too.

    Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be an Instagram Influencer?

    Imagine: it is the wee hours of the morning and you’ve promised yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    Roll over, check your cell.

    Flipping to Instagram.

    Hmmm, you think, Over 1000 likes on a single picture.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Presto! Another 63 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it’s not a like but a message from one of your followers. They congratulate you on your success and let you know they absolutely love your content.

    As you read it, you begin to smile. It’s a amazingly attractive person, and they love your posts.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    Hmmm, ANOTHER message. You close your cellphone and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
    Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

    My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds foolish, but results don’t lie.)

    Now, what if you increased your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it is not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.

    If you’re anything like our other valued compadres, you will have a great chance of hitting the “Top Post” section in a very short time.

    Sound too good to be true? Here’s what you’ve got to do to get a taste:
    1. Visit https://tomm.pw
    2. Put your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes will be sent to your three most recent uploads. Just like that.

    Being a regular staple on that page will supercharge your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?

    Happy image-uploading.
