In other words, the classic Irish condition. So a new book exploring what happiness means to Irish people is an achievement in itself. In Sonas: Celtic Thoughts on Happiness a host of Irish people express what happiness means to them, in diverse and often deeply personal ways — though the omission of Father Jack is surely and oversight as his three-word contribution would at least have the advantage of brevity, which another Irishman regarded as the soul of wit.

Whether revealed as something to be glimpsed, grasped, sought after or savoured, in Sonas, the Irish look at the different guises of happiness and how, if you stop to savour it, you can find happiness all around you.

He spun for Ireland, and we repay him with a spin whenever he likes. So, in a sense, this format, though successful in the past, has perhaps run its course.

We are no longer looking to the pillars of society for their wisdom and guidance in the way we once did. Literally, in the case of Michael Flatley. What it says says more about Michael Flatley and what he thinks about himself. See me!

The cover photograph was one I picked myself from the wonderful collection of Michael Herrman in Ballinskelligs and I had control over every aspect of the final product. I had two book launches, one in Cork and one in Dublin. I think this is a success story for a number of reasons. I loved writing it, loved writing the kind of book that I love to read.
If I loved the book, then surely others would too. I geared it towards women who like to sit down in front of a cosy fire and just read a good story, set in idyllic surroundings about life, love and relishing your dreams, about the small things in life that make it special. I knew it was important to have a thoroughly edited text, classic cover, high quality finish and excellent layout. All of this, I hope I have achieved.
So this Christmas, turn off the endless discussion of economy, budgets and banks. Listen instead to the voice inside your head, telling you to appreciate the simple things that are happening all around you.

The main backdrop for the action is the remote and magically beautiful island of Valentia in Kerry, one of the most westerly points of the country. Valentia is a readable, absorbing story with engaging, well-drawn characters in situations many of us, and women in particular, will be able to relate to. In this era of widespread economic downturn and material hardship for so many people — which has hit Ireland particularly badly after so many years riding high on the Celtic Tiger — Valentia brings the reader back, time and again, to the core values of family, a sense of community and the need to belong.
These, along with a profound, spiritual appreciation of the natural world, are the key features of the world view which the author proposes to us —one which is ultimately far more fulfilling and sustaining than the frantic and tireless pursuit of wealth and possession which has been at the heart of the recent financial meltdown.
