My articles have featured in ‘An Cosantóir’, ‘Emergency Services Ireland’, Contact, and SIGNAL magazines.

As an accredited Defence Forces Military Journalist, they are produced in conjunction with, and with the approval of, the Defence Forces and Naval Service Press Office, where appropriate.

You can follow the links in the menu at the top of the page, or use the links below which shall bring you to where I have re-created them here in full on this WordPress site.

I also share them via my LinkedIn profile, where the articles are also published in full.

Those articles which are published in print in An Cosantóir, for example, are only republished here after the monthly issue in which they first appear has been replaced by the latest edition.

I do intend to expand the range of articles and subjects that I write on. Time is the most pressing issue, it is a finite commodity when you are working full time and have an active home life.

An Cosantóir.
‘An Cosantóir’ is the official magazine of the Irish Defence Forces.
First published in 1940, An Cosantóir provides, in print format, accurate and timely information about Defence Forces operations and policies to its members, their families and interested parties worldwide.

A typical issue may contain articles dealing with new equipment, training, overseas service, unit and individual activities and achievements, international military affairs, military history, sport and much more.

An Cosantóir is distributed monthly to a readership of approximately 25,000.
Sold in 191 Outlets nationwide including 41 Eason & Son bookshops and 38 Tesco Extra/Super Stores around Ireland.

Emergency Services Ireland.
‘Emergency Services Ireland’ provides a platform for the state and voluntary emergency services to highlight their initiatives and projects.

With contributions from leading national and international EMS practitioners, in addition to profiles and interviews with those at the front line of pre-hospital and emergency care, the magazine is now a popular medium to share opinions and viewpoints on policies, procedures and practices.

This quarterly magazine is circulated to personnel working in both the state and voluntary emergency services agencies, including An Garda Síochana, Fire Services, HSE Ambulance Service, Defence Forces, Irish Prison Service, the Irish Coast Guard, Mountain Rescue, Civil Defence, and Irish Red Cross.

‘Emergency Services Ireland’ is also distributed to all Government Departments, Ireland’s public and private hospitals, healthcare institutions and agencies.

Since the first issue was published in April 2001, the magazine has developed a very strong readership base, both at home and abroad.
