    Shameless self-promotion

    Pól Ó Muirí

    I am beginning the New Year with some shameless self-promotion. BBC Northern Ireland are broadcasting an audio on-line drama for learners, An Fháinleog, what I wrote, to quote Ernie Wise. The work started on January 1 and will continue with daily installments until January 20th. The pieces are short readings by Pól Penrose (grma!) and deal with contemporary issues – the weather, for example! – in, I hope, an imaginative way. Part sci-fi, part First Steps, it is here for anyone who wants to listen – and that includes people who are fluent. Many thanks to Róisín Kelleher at the BBC for her great help in producing the work. It has been 20 years since I published my first book and here I am still hacking away. Not a bad way to celebrate the New Year! (And, yes, New Year’s Resolution does include getting back to blogging!)
