The south-west Victorian community of Crossley is celebrating following the news that Victorian Premier Denis Napthine will launch a memoir in honour of their church's battle for survival. Saving St Brigid's is the unique story of a rural Australian community who, in the spirit of their Irish rebel ancestors, fought against the Catholic Parish that wanted to sell their church."


Such a huge moment for me and the Saving St Brigid's memoir, to have a long time friend and important Victorian present my book in the Koroit Irish Festival.  Words cannot express the emotion right now for this recognition from a respected member of the community.


You can watch the Q&A here with Ken Gale, Denis Napthine and Myself...and there go those bloody bagpipes again...nicely timed at 15:20 to distract me from getting teary seeing Dad tear up in the front row watching me talk about what Saving St Brigid's meant for our family. I kept it together for the Premier though!
