Thus far I have published new editions of novels previously published by Lilliput and Picador – The Fabulists, The Water Star, and the Fisher Child, collectively known as The Bann River Trilogy. I have also published my selected poems,Tried and Sentenced, and The Coupla, a novel based on Irish legend for children nine years and over.
THE BANN RIVER TRILOGY
The Bann river flows from Croghan Mountain on the Wexford-Wicklow border before it joins the river Slaney north of Enniscorthy. Along with Croghan Mountain, it features in all three of my novels published so far, The Fabulists, The Water Star, and The Fisher Child. According to Wikipedia the name Bann comes from the Irish An Bhanna, from ban-dea, meaning “goddess”.
