He’s joining the tycoon
shaped like who owns Ireland.
‘Our’ Aidan Coughlan, editor of 2013’s acclaimed The Broadsheet Book of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland (New Island) is heading to
the Dark Side Newstalk.
A courageous contributor, some may recall Aidan had a bike wheel stolen while covering the US Election and suffered a dramatic hand injury on the eve of the buke’s publication.
We will remember him as an uncanny arbiter of pareidolia and a friend.
