Blast from the Past……………………

Tallaght Echo

Apologies, but todays planned article has been postponed until tomorrow as I have some news, i would like to share.  I finaly achieved one of my long term goals, well sort of! I got my self into a newspaper and its not the crime pages:-) Recently I was contacted by the Tallaght Community Council and asked to contribute an article I did some time ago on St. Colmcille’s Well, to a series of articles which they run in the local Newspaper. Well I’m originaly from Tallaght so I was delighted to be asked. Entitled “Love Tallaght Outdoors”. which is a series of articles published by the local paper The Echo, featuring various places of interest and peoples personal memories of these places and a brief history. Here’s hoping, that I might get to feature a few more. You can see the original blog post HERE if your interested along with more images, and links to other really interesting places from my hometown.

On a final note here is a clue and a small teaser as to tomorrows delayed post. In Kildare Town, Where lives the Sheela na gig?

    It sort of looks like Roman design? A great story I can see why the newspaper wanted more. But about your other entries into the paper – crimes? 😈 ?

      • Why not set up a KickStarter account and let your fans help you out? Figure out the cost of self-publishing, add an extra few hundred dollars for “insurance” and put it out there in the “Internets.” You could at least get the ball rolling and if there is a lot of action, get the attention of a decent publishing house for this, or especially, the NEXT one! 🙂

  19. Well done Eddie!
    It is quite a buzz when it happens. I was on TV at the start of the year, talking about this weight loss surgery of mine. To be honest, it was quite a pleasant day knowing that at least my first time on TV wasn’t a mugshot on Crimewatch…!

    Nice, well done Ed. I think Tallaght needs its champions. It’s beautifully situated at the foot of the hills there but retains a bit of an image problem I think?

    Delighted at your success, Ed. Secretly, I would have been delighted to have a ‘bad boy’ (crime pages) as a follower.:) BTW, we refer to sheela-na-gigs as hoochie-mamas. Kerry x
