Global Irish Travel

Wanderlust. . . . It’s part of the Irish experience. Maybe it’s even in the DNA.But from the voyages of St. Brendan, through the exile of the earls, to the many waves of emigration, up to today’s globetrotting expats and tourists, the penchant for the Irish to want to see the world beyond is well known. Heck, Van Morrison even wrote song about it.With that in mind, we begin.The Wild Geese Global Irish Travel group aims to provide a vehicle for members to share their wisdom and experiences by…See More

On the Anniversary of García Márquez's Death, a New Book Asks, 'Was Gabo an Irishman?'

My husband is convinced that there is a website called “wiki-paddy-a,” which I use to prove that my beloved homeland, Ireland, has given the world many great things. Like Halloween, for example, or the discovery of America.That’s right. You heard me. Researchers are certain that there was a colony of Irish folk…See More

Profile Information

I was born and bred in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. Over the years, I've also called Manchester, Madrid, London, Bogotá and Oxford home. 

My first novel, Dancing with Statues, was published in February 2013. 

As one reviewer described it, "...with the Troubles in Northern Ireland providing a dramatic backdrop, Dancing with Statues provides a unique take on post-conflict Northern Ireland and what it takes to turn the page."

Like most Irish emigrants, my perspective in Dancing with Statues comes from two contradictory points of view – the distance that leaving affords, and the intimate knowledge, understanding, and love of one’s home country and culture that can never be lost, no matter how much time you spend away.

Dancing with Statues is available in stores in Ireland and on Amazon.com.

Are the Irish Natural Storytellers?

Posted on January 16, 2015 at 9:30am 32 Comments

When someone says to me that the Irish are natural storytellers, I’m usually really pleased. I’m an Irish writer, and isn’t it the ultimate aim of all writers to tell a cracking story? The…

'Smile' - A Short Film

Posted on September 29, 2014 at 4:00pm 1 Comment

I absolutely loved this short film by Wild Geese member and fellow County Tyrone author, Colin Broderick

It's called "Smile," and it's a visual poem set in New York. Lyrical and melancholic, like so much Irish poetry, it is, in the end an uplifting story of transformation and renewal. 

Enjoy!

 Caroline, we do have at least one other Irish citizen living in Colombia within our ranks, James Golding. I hope you guys connect somehow. BTW, I found James easily because he posted his location on our Member Map, something I urge you to do.

Caroline,

I did get to visit Bellaghy in County Derry in 1979 and your book reminded me of so much about Northern Ireland. Great book! I really liked your surprised ending.
