    A SKY FULL OF STARS

    A deal of the century was on the cards, too good to be true but my agents were confident. I was assured. My mind raced with wonderment and adventure. A financial deal that would look after me for the next two years. But if the money ain’t in your bank account, the gig is not… Continue reading A SKY FULL OF STARS

    SMILE

    Sometimes in life we forget to smile, smile at all the misfortunes, heartache or smile in our success. So do me a favour and just smile right now. Not that awful fake smile for those uncomfortable photos we don’t want to be in but smile like you just can’t stop laughing. So I’ve lasted two… Continue reading SMILE

    NO POTATOES, BREAD OR SUGAR FOR ME

    NO POTATOES, BREAD OR SUGAR FOR ME – BOO HOO Howaya, don’t worry I’m not one of those fitness fanatics. But one of my friends is getting married in March. He wants to shift some weight for the big day. One of the grooms men is a professional footballer so he’s done up a two… Continue reading NO POTATOES, BREAD OR SUGAR FOR ME

    TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND WALK AWAY

    Thanks for all the messages I received from readers who sent themselves a postcard with a goal attached. I’m delighted you got a boost from the exercise & you spent the money on the stamp. Right so in life you have to practise what you preach. Now I was tested, so much that the venom… Continue reading TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND WALK AWAY

    HOLD ON – PAIN ENDS – A NEW CHAPTER AWAITS

    So I’ve known pain, the type of pain suffered from a lightning bolt ripping through my body and burning me from the inside out with the extreme heat. Ouch! But now I wear my scars with pride. But I saved money, spiking my hair without gel. But I thought I knew pain till I suffered… Continue reading HOLD ON – PAIN ENDS – A NEW CHAPTER AWAITS

    WRITE YOURSELF A LETTER

    So as a playwright I’ve reached the point of living, breathing, every waking minute of my two characters Michael Joseph O’Rahilly (The O’Rahilly) & his wife Nannie Brown for my next play “The Unsung Hero”. I’m in “the zone” as some people may say. I can visualise every scene, throughout the play. I know their… Continue reading WRITE YOURSELF A LETTER

    THE BEST GIFTS ARE ALWAYS FREE

      This Christmas all I ask of my readers is to reach out to friends or family who will be lonely. It costs nothing and can be the most rewarding gift of all. I worked in the meals & wheels and I’ve seen how the elderly can be left on their own. I was their… Continue reading THE BEST GIFTS ARE ALWAYS FREE

    BELIEVE IN YOU

    I love when I’m on tour throughout Ireland. Seeing different counties in this beautiful country we call home. Each theatre has its own character and soul. Meeting new & old faces. It’s something I’ve always loved as a jobbing actor over the years. I can tell you a few stories that will surely give you… Continue reading BELIEVE IN YOU

    OH NO YOU DIDN’T – OH YES I DID – OH NO YOU DIDN’T – OH YES I DID

        Hope sees the invisible Feels the intangible And achieves the impossible Hold on Pain ends Tis Pantomime Season in Dublin “Oh Yes It Is” and I have friends involved in every production from The Helix, The Tivoli, The Olympia & The Gaiety Theatre. Now I was invited to the press night of “Little… Continue reading OH NO YOU DIDN’T – OH YES I DID – OH NO YOU DIDN’T – OH YES I DID

    IN LIFE WE ALL GET LOST AT ONE POINT, DON’T PANIC IF YOU DO.

    From my first post on #becomplete I told you that I’d always be honest. Who you see on social media is the same person you meet in real life. Do I have flaws? Of course but who doesn’t. I never pretend to be anyone else. I laugh & love in my own little world. Dreaming… Continue reading IN LIFE WE ALL GET LOST AT ONE POINT, DON’T PANIC IF YOU DO.
