Michael Harding in Kerry
Michael Harding, the Displaced in Mulllingar columnist in the Irish Times and the man who gave us a workshop in Bailieboro as part of the LitLab Meath Cavan Arts Offices initiatives, had a nice piece in Friday's Irish Times. He is in Kerry at the moment where his play about John Moriarty is being performed. He performs in the play as well. The same issue carried a review of the play.
His most recent novel was Bird in the Snow. More about Michael here and more about the Moriarty production here.

Another writer who spoke to us at LitLab was Shane Connaughton. His new novel Big Parts has just been published. Irish Independent review here.
