About Me

My name is Patrick Kelleher and I am a nineteen year old student and aspiring Journalist. I spent most of my childhood locked away in a room with a computer, furiously typing, and feeling very serious indeed. In fact, I liked to imagine at the time that I was a successful, rich and grown-up writer. I was only short a crystal tumbler of whiskey and a cigar.

As the years passed, I realised that writing isn’t all about sitting around feeling serious. Rather, writing is quite a fun thing to do. More than that, writing is incredibly important to everybody. Besides the obvious reason – communication – writing informs, and without information where would we be today? Quite the opposite from the seriousness of my childhood, I firmly believe that information needn’t be all serious.

I am currently studying for a Joint Honours Degree in English and History at University College Dublin, and I also devote a certain amount of my time to writing for The University Observer. Writing for a newspaper has taught me a great deal about what it means to be a writer. I have written comment, news and film articles since I began writing for the University Observer, and hope to broaden this further in the academic year of 2013/14.

While you are here, please enjoy reading my blogs. Make sure to comment, whether you agree or disagree with what I said. I am always looking for a good debate!
