“What Nice Needs Now” read my travel feature in the Irish Times Magazine

As the Autumn chill sets in, I am, as promised, recalling that lovely feeling of floating out in the middle of a bay on the Cote d’Azur on a steaming hot summer’s day…  Read all about it in my travel feature on Nice and the Cote d’Azur in last Saturday’s Irish Times Magazine here:

I finally returned to Nice after a couple of decades in order to interview the poet John Montague, who lives there with his wife, Elizabeth Wassell for my radio documentary “Georgie’s Vision” about his friend, Mrs.WB Yeats.  You can listen to the documentary on RTE Player for the month of October here:
