“Power & Perdition”


Eamonn's debut novel is a gently-comic but unsentimental tale that should appeal to anyone who's raised teenage children - or negotiated adolescence themselves.

"Six Pack"

Six Pack


This short collection is currently available in Kindle format, at a very low price, on all the Amazon websites. It's a compendium of four short stories that were previously published in print, one never-before published story, and a sample chapter from a novel due to be published in 2016. Details below...


● Candid Photography appeared in "Phoenix Irish Short Stories 1998". This collection was published in London by Orion Books and edited by the late David Marcus.


● File Under Popular appeared in the June 2000 edition of "Postnews" magazine. Professor Lucy Collins of Dublin City University adjudged it the winning entry to a short story competition sponsored by I.B.M. and P.C.I.


● Where There's Life appeared in "An Cloigeann is a Luach" / "What Worth The Head". This anthology was published by Limerick County Council in 1998 and launched by the then President of Ireland, Mary McAleese.


● Munchausen Mick is from a forthcoming novel that's (ostensibly) about the Irish Post Office. The book will be published in print and e-Book format at the end of 2018.


● A Baby Blue Note appeared in "An Grian", a short-lived alternative lifestyle periodical that was available in East Clare during the early 1990s.


● The Rain Don't Come is previously unpublished. This is an idiosyncratic "memory" of a Papal visit to the West of Ireland in 1979.

● Let There Be Rocca is a critique of the 1988 Eurovision
Song Contest that was written for a weekly TV column.
After being "spiked" (for reasons which become
apparent), it proved to be Eamonn's last piece for
this particular publication.
