Blackwater Babble is a story of forty summers spent traversing the Blackwater river. Forty years of sitting in the corner of each pub, scribbling in a notebook. Trying to divine the dynamics and the variables of what makes a good singsong – and what makes an epic one. Join this scribbler as he heads down the river with his younger self while they pick through the songs, fights, memories and obsessions that shaped his life – exploring regret and memory, masculinity and purpose,
set against the changing face of the Irish pub.
