Tom Hickey RIP

So sad to hear of the recent death of the talented actor Tom Hickey. My sincere sympathy to his family and legion of fans and friends. Tom was famous for his role as Benjy in RTÉ’s TV series The Riordans, but also for performances on screen and in stage plays such as Tom Murphy’s The Gigli Concert. I was honoured to have him narrate my short story Dream Lover in the Stories for the Ear series, curated by the playwright Neil Donnelly for Kildare Arts Services in 2015.
