The Attic

I write a bit of fiction to relax. Mostly short stories. In particular, in the run-up to the 2007 General Election, mostly out of frustration with being out of politics, I started a story, “Elected”, about a maverick aspiring Fianna Fail candidate. Ten chapters and 40,000 words later, I concluded it.

I’ve put the first chapter below. If anyone is interested in reading more of my bitter (Oh, so bitter!) juvenile rantings, email me. Finally, a word of caution. Bear in mind that it was written in a different Ireland from today. Just goes to show how quickly things change. And, indeed, how some things never change.

Hope you enjoy,
