Publication week in Ireland kicked off in wonderful style yesterday with a lovely interview on the Ryan Tubridy Show. I’ve been a long-time listener to the show, so to be a guest was a real honour, and a great experience. You can listen back to our chat about the Cottingley fairies hoax, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Irish fairy folklore, at the link below:
I was also delighted to contribute to a wonderful programme from the BBC World Service, about the Cottingley fairies hoax. It is a really lovely feature, and includes archive interview footage with Elsie Wright, talking about the fairy photographs.
Lots more to come over the week, with the book going on sale in Ireland this Thursday, 7th September. There might even be some fairies hiding copies of the book around Dublin … watch this space!
