Covid-19 is good for very little but it is encouraging makers to share their work in this virtual realm where most of us are now living our lives which is positive. Here is another short by the wonderful Chris O’Neill, programmer and film-maker. This is the second project that I collaborated with him on.
Had so much fun on this shoot with the amazingly talented cast and crew. Director Phil Ronayne was an absolute pleasure to work with aswell as my great co-stars Mark McCabe and Emmet Byrne. Delighted to finally share it amidst the real sci-fi that is our current, collective existence. Hope you enjoy!

Delighted to perform part of Molly Bloom’s final soliloquy as part of Bloomsday celebrations this year at the ‘Drawing on Joyce’ exhibition featuring work by Paula Meehan, Nickie Hayden, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Maser and Robert Russell at The Olivier Cornet Gallery. Loved sharing the process through which I facilitated the writing of some Haiku poetry with SAOL Project which you’ll find printed on Nickie Hayden’s beautiful copper plates. All proceeds from the sale of these being kindly donated by Nickie to the SAOL Project.
