EMA & multiple PPI award-winner, he has presented some of the most
critically acclaimed programmes on the Irish airwaves including his cult radio
show Mystery Train and The Works Presents – a series of in-depth television
interviews with leading figures in the world of arts and culture. John, who is
originally from Enniskillen, says: “I’m really looking forward to reading at
home. I’ve done most of the literary festivals this year but this is the big
one. Everything for me has its roots in Fermanagh and I consider it a very
great honour to be invited to take part in Fermanagh Live.”
