Cool-haired polymath Michelle Delea has produced a documentary, The Sprawling Octopus of an Elevated Highway, about a group of campaigners who prevented Cork from becoming host to a destructive flyover 50 years ago. It debuted on Friday 23rd September (Culture Night).
Accompanying the documentary was a special newspaper, comprising interviews and features about the city.
I was very pleased to be able to contribute a short story, ‘Peace Park’.
A few months ago, Cork Nature Network put out a call for ‘short stories about otters for young readers’. With an hour till the deadline, I sat down in a café and wrote a short story about otters for young readers.
Very happily, it was accepted – you can buy a copy of the collection below (all proceeds go towards Cork Nature Network projects).
