About Me

My name is Pádraig Ó Méalóid. I’m a straight, white, English-speaking, western European, middle-aged, middle-class Irish male. As well as that, I’m an ex-Catholic, ex-smoker, ex-drinker, left-handed, Irish speaker, who reads a lot and writes a bit about things he is interested in. I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer at the beginning of 2010, and have had huge amounts of treatments and surgery consequent to that ever since, which has certainly changed my life, in a number of different ways.

This blog is intended to be a personal one, where I attempt to examine all the things that make we what I am. I have had a lot of time over the past years to think about myself, my place in the world, and imponderables like life, and death, and other, less important issues, like the music I like, and the books I read, and the various people I have known, and places I have worked over the years. All of these things will be grist to my mill here. In the end, I’m writing this blog as much to explain things to to myself, as for any other reason, as sometimes the best way to crystallise what I’m trying to think is to write it down.

God knows, the world isn’t in any great need of another blog, but, sure, if people don’t wish to read it, no power on Earth can force them to do so.

  1. Will, I must say, you sure know how to kick off a blog. Best wishes, and remember to have fun.

  2. A Phádraig, a chara,
    tá mé ag déanamh roinnt taighde i láthair na huaire agus ba mhaith liom roinnt rudaí a phlé leat maidir le comics in Éirinn.
    An bhféadfadh mé scríobh chugat?
    Mise le meas,
    Cathal Ó Cuaig
