Author Kevin O’Hara to Appear on the CatholicTV® Network
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (August 14, 2012) –Author Kevin O’Hara to Appear on the CatholicTV® Network
On Tuesday, August 14, 2012, author Kevin O’Hara will appear on CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day to discuss his latest book, Last of the Donkey Pilgrims.
Last of the Donkey Pilgrims: A Man’s Journey Through Ireland, depicts Kevin O’Hara’s journey of self-discovery as he circles the entire coastline of Ireland on foot—with a donkey and cart.
Kevin had promised his homesick Irish mother that he would explore the whole of the Old Country and bring back the sights and the stories to their home in Massachusetts. Determined to reach his grandmother’s village by Christmas Eve, Kevin and his stubborn but endearing donkey, Missie, set off on 1800-mile trek along the entire jagged coast of a divided Ireland.
Their adventure takes them over mountains and dales, through smoky cities and sleepy villages, and into the farmhouses and hearts of Ireland’s greatest resource—its people. Along the way, Kevin meets incredible characters, experiences Ireland in all of its glory, and explores not only his Irish past, but finds his future self.
Kevin O'Hara, winner of the 2012 John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Award, has read his homespun stories on numerous TV and radio stations, in addition to appearing at countless libraries, colleges, and Irish pubs throughout New England. Kevin has spent the last twenty years working as a psychiatric nurse at the Berkshire Medical Center and lives in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
