I got some good news today - my mother is getting published!
Londubh Books are releasing A Pint and a Haircut later this year. It's a collection of true Irish stories and all royalties will go to Concern's fund for victims of the earthquake in Haiti (so you'd better buy a copy, Wyclef. I'm watching you).
It looks like it should be a good collection and it will be out in time for Christmas.
