Me Between Now And Xmas

A final update on stuff you can see me at and things you should come to over the next while!

November 19th – The latest Epilepsy Ireland table quiz –


November 25th – I’m honoured to be able to tell you that I’m going to be co-presenting this year’s Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards on RTE One with Keelin Shanley (well, half the ceremony, anyway!) It’ll be on TV that Saturday night November 28th.

I’ve been a couple of times, even announced a category once but, astonishingly after all of the events I’ve done over the years, this is my first televised and my first literary awards ceremony. I’m genuinely beside myself –


November 28th – It’s Dante’s 750th anniversary this year and I’ll be reading part of his Divine Comedy in the National Gallery! Other readers on the day include President Higgins, Marian Keyes and John Banville –


December 1st – We record our Xmas Poetry Programme for RTE Radio 1 – you can still get free tickets on our Facebook Page.

The Poetry Programme

December 9th – Speaking at Sci Com 2015 – Athlone. A whole event full of science communicators and me talking about how to use social media to get your message across –


Stuff I can’t tell you about yet in 2016:

A craft beer event, a major book event and the dates for the Student Enterprise Awards, SME Awards, Sockies 2016, Web Awards 2016 and the brand new eCommerce Awards too…
