Hugh O'Donnell on the Radio

This Sunday we have the thoughtful and thought-provoking Hugh O'Donnell providing us with the road map on the next leg of the Sunday Scrapbook journey. His theme is Poetry under the Neon.

Hugh O'Donnell's first collection, Roman Pines At Berkley, appeared from Salmon Publishing in 1990. He has contributed to RTÉ Radio One's, Sunday Miscellany and short-listed for the Francis MacManus Short Story Competition. In 1998, he received a bursary from Laois County Council to spend some time at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig. In 2006 he graduated with an MS in Ecology and Religion from the University of Wales (Lampeter) out of which grew Eucharist and the Lliving Earth (Columbia, 2007), a book of ecological theology. He lives with the Salesian community in Dublin city where he minsters in the local parish. He will sometimes sign his emails Hu, after he gets to know you a little bit.

Hugh's poetry is well worth a listen if you haven't seen it before, and I'm sure everyone will enjoy his engaging and philosophical conversation as much as I do.

He's on stage at 4pm (10am in Winnipeg), on Liffey Sound - link on the right - or toon into 96.4 fm. The recording should be up on the archive from Tuesday.
