Chaos and Conspiracy
Gerard Cunningham is the author of ‘Chaos & Conspiracy‘, the story of the McBrearty family and the Morris tribunal.
“Chaos and Conspiracy is a gripping account which will be read most avidly in Raphoe. But it should also be obligatory reading for the 14,000 members of the gardai and for those of us tempted to argue that the end justifies the means when it comes to combating crime.”
Michael Brennan, Irish Independent
“This is a brilliant piece of reporting. Readers will already know the bones of this case through newspaper, TV and radio reports. The book to hand, taken in two or three sittings, makes for a more dramatic read than the daily drip-feed of national newspapers.”
Tom Widger, Sunday Tribune
Turas Cholm Cille Pocket Guide
A new guide to the historic Turas Cholm Cille in Gleann Cholm Cille, launched just before the saint’s holy day on 9 June 2010.
The 24 page booklet, a one-stop guide to the early medieval pilgrimage, was designed by local journalist Gerard Cunningham.
The Turas is one of the major attractions in the area, noted for its megalithic and early Christian monuments.
One of the cross pillars has become an iconic symbol of the parish, featured in calendars, tourist guides, books, and even matchboxes.
