Ireland's dreamiest place to start your writing journey

I have known Nicola Kearns now for over thirteen years and have watched her apply herself and develop her many talents. Apart from her other enterprises she has become a published author, and no doubt, quite capable of helping others find themselves in the literary field where she has achieved. Nicola helped me in 2009 in the transcription of some of my father’s (Ernie O’Malley) most difficult transcriptions of local Leitrim survivors of the War of Independence and the Civil War. The transcription work had been a challenge for all who had tried it. In Nicola’s case, she did far more than she was asked to do and brought local lore to bear on a subject of which I knew little. Her work was thorough, efficient and timely. She knew when to ask questions but otherwise she carried on and delivered a fine product. Given the work she had done on the Battie Cryan interview, she deserved an acknowledgement, but the interview was not included in my ‘The Men Will Talk to Men: Mayo Interviews by Ernie O’Malley” only due to space limitations. I heartily endorse Nicola and her projects. Yours sincerely, Cormac O’Malley Author, Editor and Lecturer
