Eoin Butler: writer, journalist and Mayoman of the Year

Tripping Along The Ledge



20-rock-n-roll-high-schoolIt’s a bank holiday, the sun is out and… I’m off to Cavan for the weekend. Well, that’s two reasons to be cheerful. Before I go I should mention:

1. My Morrissey symposium story appeared in the Ticket today. You can read it here.
2. The Lisa Hannigan story is in the Irish Times magazine tomorrow.
3. The backlash against the Steve Appleton backlash is underway here and here.
4. And finally, I just got served with a summons to appear in court on June 5th. WTF? I’m an innocent man… I’m going out the front door with Gerry etc. etc.
5. Have a great weekend!

May 1st, 2009.

    Lovely piece on the Morrisey Symposium, poor Peter Finan, a true Morrisey construct.

    Have a good one in Cavan.

    @Eoin dunno many of the pubs there. My sister’s fiance – a bit of a square now – goes on about McMahons and the Black Horse.

    Now, if you’re feeling thirsty on your way home through Kells, then I could help a brother out!

  8. Clare Says:

    Did you really get a court summons? Is it jury duty maybe?

  9. Eoin Says:

    Nope, it’s really a court summons Clare. I’ll tell you what it’s about when I’m back from Portugal.

  10. Eoin Says:

    P.S. Don’t tell Mammy!
