A Quiet Pint is a personal blog for me, Bishop O’Connell. The name comes from enjoying a good pint and the craic with some friends. Barring that, a good book is a suitable accompaniment to a pint of your favorite draught. Yes, draught. Neither bottles nor cans count. My intention with this blog is to keep it, at least initially, related to my writing and all things associated with it, though I do have a tendency to digress. Should that happen, I hope you enjoy the ride. I promise to get back to my initial thought eventually, though. So, welcome. I hope you leave entertained and perhaps on rare occasions even enlightened.
