I'm a US-born journalist who has lived in Ireland for 20 years studying traditional ways of life; I write a weekly column for the Irish Nationalist newspapers, as well as articles for The American Conservative, First Things, Mother Earth News, Front Porch Republic, the Dallas Morning News and others. I’ve appeared on RTE television and mentioned on the BBC programme QI.
My articles will be reprinted here as they appear, but for more you can see my blog Restoring Mayberry or the videos I’ve made on the Youtube channel. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com or on social media linked below.
