Hi Trevor, I came across your blog in research on Cootehall. I too, am a McGahern fan and have read his works with much enjoyment over the past few years. When were you in Leitrim? I was there this year with my family in August, as well. We were staying down the south in Ballyferriter for five weeks but I spent a great day driving around Fenagh, Ballinamore, Lisacarn etc. We stayed at Lough Rynn, went to the Mohill Show, also saw the site of where the house was that was dismantledas his mother lay upstairs dying. I'm writing an essay about fathers in his fiction, and of course having another good look at Memoir. Thanks for the biblio. on his writings, as I will have a look at the journals. Glad to see that you also like Claire Keegan. She was a real discovery for us this year.

Hi Brendan - I was in Ballinamore for just a few days in late Aug as part of a longer trip visiting my daughter in Dublin before visiting a few places in Europe. I hope to return to Leitrim for a longer visit this year or next. I hope this bibliography proves helpful and if you see any extra articles etc I should add do let me know. And, of course, I'd love to see your essay in due course. Regards Trevor

  • I have worked in politics, public policy and strategic communications for over 30 years. I was recently awarded a doctorate in Australian politics at the University of Sydney. My thesis was on the (changing) relationship between the ALP and unions. I have been blogging since November 2003 and over the past decade I have written many articles on politics, public relations and social media for newspapers, magazines and websites. I love literature particularly John McGahern and James Joyce. The header photo is of the Clarence River taken before dawn at Ulmarra in 2012.
