Published stories

These stories are based on my travels to Ireland since 2000, as well as domestic reporting. Some of the pieces are linked directly to the websites of publications where they originally appeared. Some older stories that are not available online are reproduced with original content and headlines. In some cases I have added hyperlinks and images.
