Bantercast 05 Other Voices: Donal Ryan

As regular Banter fans will know, we work with the amazing Other Voices TV show and music festival and have hosted sessions with them in Dingle, Derry and London. This is the first of many Bantercasts to be taken from those adventures and features Jim chatting to fellow Tipperary man and award-winning author Donal Ryan. The man behind two of the best Irish books of the last decade spoke to us about the art of writing, Russian gangsters, rural Ireland, language, his day job – and his prowess as an arm wrestler.
