Séan Ó Tuathaigh


Séan Ó Tuathaigh (Tuohis Neanderthalensis) is a reclusive figure shrouded in mystery. Known to have clod-hopped through an M. Phil in Creative Writing in the Big Smoke (TCD, Dublin), it was last spotted roaming the foothills of Benbulbin, County Sligo, in search of literary inspiration, or, more likely, hunting/gathering. It has been known to frequent numerous watering holes throughout its territory where it can be heard to issue its distinctive cry (‘Pine-tov-ginnis, pine-tov-ginnis’).

A largely nocturnal character, leading experts have surmised that a good portion of its waking hours are spent within its lair, scribbling primitive markings in what some theorise to be a sort of proto-alphabet in the form of an historical thriller and a collection of refugee stories.

In the unlikely event that you stumble across this elusive thicket-dweller, remain calm. DO NOT feed. DO NOT approach. Back away quietly and phone the authorities. When you have reached safety please DO READ it's primitive markings.
