About the author (2010)

Patrick O'Sullivan was born in Ireland. He lived the first part of his childhood in Doneraile, County Cork, the second part in inner city Liverpool. From there the wonderful English education system sent him to university, at Oxford, Kent and Bradford. He had a career in social work and in the probation service, specialising in work with drug misuse, and in family breakdown. In recent decades he has concentrated on the study of the Irish Diaspora, creating a series of books and organising support networks for Irish Diaspora scholars throughout the world. Alongside that formal work he has been involved in music and in theatre, and has taught courses on theatre and literature. And all the time, inside his head, there were voices making songs. He lives in Bradford, Yorkshire, with his wife, Alison, and their two sons, Dan and Jake.
