I am a professional journalist and published author. I wrote 'Island of the Setting Sun - In Search of Ireland's Ancient Astronomers' in collaboration with Richard Moore in 2006 and it was republished as a revised edition a year and a half later. I am currently working on my next book, 'Newgrange - Monument to Immortality', to be published by The Liffey Press in Autumn 2012.

My website contains lots of photos and information relating to the ancient sites and myths of Ireland. See for information about my new book.

I am also interested in music. I am Principal Euphonium player with Drogheda Brass Band, the now six-in-a-row champions of Ireland. You can hear our 2012 own choice piece, Penlee - about a maritme rescue tragedy off the English coast in the 1980s, below:
