'This is t an autobiography, but it is a collection of articles which reflects some of my experiences, some of the people I have kwn and some episodes that I thought worth putting on the record. Some of these writings have been published in a number of newspapers and magazines, in Dublin and London. Some have t been previously published. We are all witnesses of our time, and this is something of a witness to mine.'
