O’Connell on the radio

Freelancing between two countries has its perks.

The feeling of great self-importance as you operate two phones is one especially when one of them is an iPhone.

I also enjoy spending as much time as I seem to do these days on public transport and in airports. The transience of it all is really appealing to me and I refuse to moan like most other frequent travellers do.

I am writing this blog in Manchester airport as I return to Dublin for the next month. I thought I’d share with you my contribution to local Irish radio – WLR FM –  not so long ago, merely as it has been hanging around on my desktop for a while waiting to be uploaded.

I am speaking on Ireland’s general election day on 25 February as the polls showed high turnouts across the country. Hat tip to my sometime TheJournal.ie colleague Gavan Reilly for recording it for the purposes of making my mammy proud and sticking it on here, I guess.
