You may have heard about me from my thrillsome and moving tale of That Time I Ended Up Hanging With The President of Ireland While On Ketamine. I have a column in the Irish Times every Saturday, and I also co-host the remarkable and wonderful Reducer Podcast, in which Gavin Cooney and I discuss the best and worst football related TV, books, movies and music. You may know me from my work at cultural artifact archive of Remembering Ireland (both Facebook and Twitter)I am most especially expert in reviewing terrible books about football, such as Steve Bruce's crime thrillers STRIKER!, SWEEPER! and DEFENDER! the latter two for top cleverclogs football site, The Setpieces. I also do other interesting bits and pieces for the Irish Times, interviewing the likes of Alan Moore and that, did some music reviews for XLR8R and various scribblings for numerous other papers, mags and websites.
i am universally adored for the many rush hour crushes i've had published in the UK Metro and my ongoing quest to get pooey words printed on Nutella jars.i occasionally write short stories, and am also known for having reviewed Morrissey's List of the Lost). I also write articles about all sorts of music.
there are also my patented letters from Santa.
