Poems for a Sunday Afternoon

I’m reading at Down Arts Centre in Downpatrick this Sunday 29th April as part of Write! Down’s Poems for a Sunday Afternoon series. The event runs from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. There’s an open mic after the reading, so anyone who feels like sharing a poem they’ve written or reading a favourite poem is most welcome. Tern TV will be filming part of the event. Admission is free.

Two Little Boys – Short Film

I’m delighted that my short film Two Little Boys is going to be made as part of Northern Ireland Screen’s Short Steps Scheme. Two Little Boys is the story of a young soldier who seeks comfort in his old family home but the horrors of war haunt him wherever he goes.

The director Ryan Tohill is designing shots as we speak. After months working on the script, it’s strange having to let go and hand it over to someone  else to shoot, but I know it’s safe in Ryan’s hands as he’s grasped what I wanted to stay right from the start.

Thanks to Ryan and the Short Step’s team Christine Morrow, Natasha Geary and Jim Meredith for helping to develop the script.
