The Cry of the Sebac now availabe on Amazon Kindle


One boy can be more powerful than an army. 

A boy meets a mysterious talking bird, a floating hawk who claims to have lived forever. Guided by the bird, he glimpses his own destiny. He alone must save mankind from rushing over the precipice to his doom. The boy will have to prevent an apocalypse. But how? The bird, who calls himself the Sebac Gaoth (Hawk on the Wind), takes him on an extraordinary journey through mind and space to meet the Tuatha Dé Danann, those who are foretold to come to the aid of man for a battle to save the world. In the process of revelation, the boy helps the Sebac to realise something of his own origins and destiny.

Land of the Ever-Living Ones

Read what others are saying about Land of the Ever-Living Ones:

Give yourself a present of space and an hour or two to read and reflect, and like Oisin in Tir n-Og, you will return to this world, reluctantly, but enriched. - Simon W. Kennedy

This novella of hope will be like my Anam Cara, my soul friend. - Michael Ray Fox on

This book is beautifully written, beautifully told … A treasure to behold and pass on…- Richard Moore, co-author of 'Island of the Setting Sun'.

New interactive Boyne Valley sites map
The new Boyne Valley ancient sites interactive map
The new Boyne Valley interactive ancient sites map.  

With all of the recent archaeological surveying and imaging in the Bend of the Boyne area, a whole raft of previously unknown monuments, landscape features and possible monuments have been discovered. As a result of all these discoveries and revelations, I've decided to create a brand new interactive ancient sites map of the Boyne Valley to incorporate all of these new discoveries.

The new Flash map is designed to show information about the known monuments in addition to many of the new discoveries. There are many different types of monuments featured, including passage-tombs, barrows, ringforts, enclosures, standing stones, ritual ponds, causeways, cursus monuments, field systems, earthworks, possible mounds, destroyed monuments and more. I am in consultation with archaeologists with a view to improving the information provided and to even increase the number of monuments featured. To see the new map CLICK HERE

"Peace mounts to the heavens, the heavens descend to earth, earth lies under the heavens,
everyone is strong . . ." Victory song of the Morrigan, Book of Fermoy

"In the old time the people used to be looking at the moon and at the sun and the rest of the stars, travelling and ever-travelling, through the day, and at the flowing and ever-flowing of the world's wells and rivers, and at the sadness of the earth and the trance and the sleep of it with the coming of winter, and the rising of the world again with the coming of the summer." Great Wonders of the Olden Time, from Lady Gregory's Saints and Wonders
