My restored and colourised photo taken on June 16 1954, the first Bloomsday,  featuring poets Patrick Kavanagh & Anthony Cronin at the church – and Goggin’s pub – in Monkstown [County Dublin] with the carriage in which they’d been traveling about Dublin in the footsteps of Leopold Bloom, the main protagonist in James Joyce’s novel Ulysses.

A video I made about Ireland at Christmas in 2013- the shopping, the drinking, the jumpers, the lights, the homeless and the next morning with poem by Patrick Kavanagh ‘A Christmas Childhood’. It is read by Eoghan O’Drisceoil who himself spent a time homeless but has recently published two collections of poetry.
