Travelling by Marion Clarke and Aidan McKinley

Marion Clarke writes, paints, teaches her kids French on Fridays, works as a secretary in a local school two days a week, and meets with her writing group every fortnight and her online writing group daily. She has had her short stories, poetry, flash fiction and artwork published in national and international journals but, more usefully, cooks a bloody good curry. Marion’s blog is at http://seaviewwarrenpoint.wordpress.com

Aidan Mc Kinley is a forty-three-year-old amateur photographer from Warrenpoint, Northern Ireland. Despite past-life misdemeanours, he has ended up with the reasonably responsible roles of firefighter and postman. In his spare time, Aidan likes to play indoor soccer (it always rains in Ireland) but now and then he braves the elements to walk the less travelled roads with his trusty camera. He loves sniffing out ghost stories and listening to local tales about Carlingford Lough and the surrounding area. For any unfortunate soul who happens to be within earshot, he will retell these stories – at absolutely no charge!

  1. Thank you, Irena. 🙂 Aidan took the photo in the village of Rostrevor, just a few kilometres along the coast from Warrenpoint. The light on the lough inspired this piece of prose.
