(1939- ) Irish journalist and author, working in the former capacity 1967-1989 as religious affairs correspondent for The Irish Press. He is of some sf interest for The Vatican Caper (1981), about the assassination of the imaginary Pope Patrick I, and for the more ambitious The Lynch Years: A Political Fantasy (1986), which circumambiates the life of the real Irish politician Jack Lynch (1917-1999) with material evocative of tall-tale Fantastika modestly reminiscent of Flann O'Brien and Spike Milligan, along with spoofish sf incursions, including First Contact with an Alien whose Spaceship lands in Belfast.
