What book do you wish you had written?
Maurice Craig’s Dublin: 1660-1860.

Quite possibly I’d be working in field archaeology as that’s where I was before starting with the IGS.

When was the last time you looked at wikipedia?
Yesterday.

What event had the greatest impact on history in Ireland?
The famine because of its broad social, cultural, economic and political legacy.

What book are you currently reading?
I’ve just finished The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery and trying to decide now between fiction and non-fiction – any suggestions?
