I’m Toirdealbhach Ó Lionáird. I’m from and live in Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland. Don’t tell anyone but I lay dubious claim to Skibbereen, Co. Cork as my birthplace.
I write short stories and poetry in my spare time but can also be found reading, looking up the meaning of words and writing them down in a notebook, watching t.v. box sets and films. Lately, I am spending too much time on social media.
I’m un-apologetically a teacher (deputy principal RAWR!) It’s the best job in the world but this is a great escape. Writing provides the freedom to say what you want if you’re brave enough.
I drink coffee and love grub (too much) but I try to work it off at maybe an intensity that reaches for my champion youth a little too much.
I love being on the move at home and abroad and a little secret I’ll let you into is to get out and meet people. It keeps me right and real even if I sometimes find it difficult to fully engage. This may be a weBLOG but I prefer the real world. I was once in a writers’ group until most of us just became writers again. I’m open to meeting like-minded writers (i.e. that you read and write) but we don’t need to agree on everything. I don’t believe in . I’d love to hear from you so follow me on twitter @tolionaird , here on the blog, or firstname.lastname@example.org
