GOD on a BICYCLE.
Evan O’Gorman is a young, Irish rower, coached by a father who is tormented by grief and an obsession with qualification for the Olympics. When Evan’s oar hits a dead horse in the River Liffey, it starts an irresistible chain of events that carries him from rowing defeat, through the psychological devastation of a breakup, to exile in Barcelona. Evan’s search for the daughter of a Basque terrorist draws him into the sphere of a psychopathic killer and ultimately leads to a flight for his life, a World Championships and a thrilling conclusion on a lake in the north of Spain.

‘SPEECH SPEECH’ by Ian O’Malley
All Irish people have at least one good story to tell – A Pint and a Haircut is the proof of that.
“’Speech, Speech’ is a beautifully written piece that deals with the human fear of public speaking. It also moves from comedy to tragedy with the deftness of a Joycean short story.” – Frank McNally.
“’Speech, Speech’ is a fantastically told story, very funny story… told very touchingly. There’s a twist at the end which I really didn’t see coming, it really stopped me in my tracks.” – Tom Dunne.
