I grew up in North Kerry but I've been coming to Galway for the past 30 years, I went to university here, Michael D thought me before he became a politician, we are going back a bit now! I travel around the country playing festivals, writing poetry and I'm involved in Irish traditional music, oh I also have a lady friend who lives here so that's a draw too. I am putting the finishing touches on a play and I have been selling my novels for the past 25 years. Galway is great, its' one of the best spots in Ireland really, a fantastic place if you are involved in the arts or if you are a writer. There is a buzz about the city. I can't get enough of it!''
