Thank you for visiting “My Thoughts On A Page.”
My name is Tric Kearney and I’m a stay at home mum of four from Ireland, married to ‘yer man’ for three decades.
The births of my children says a lot about my journey through life and how I have evolved as a person, my first child was induced and I shouted for and was given every drug possible, culminating in an epidural. my fourth was born at home in a pool, relatively quietly, with a paracetamol taken a few hours afterwards for a headache!
I am a calmer, wiser, more mature person than 30 years ago, but inside I am bold, rebellious and a non conformer!
I love life and all it brings and am fascinated by people, how they think, act and look. I have a passion for writing having kept a private diary for the past 30 years, from the sad, lonely days immediately after my Dad died, through my engagement, marriage, birth of my children (not conception) and all the other events of note, or not, in my life to date.
Now I’ve gone digital and public!
I began this blog in January 2013 and it has shared many of the highs and lows in my life since. One of my greatest highs was winning ‘Best writer’ at the Irish Parenting Blog Awards, and also ‘Best Personal Blog’, but I’ve also won prizes in Ink Tears Flash Fiction and Liberties Flash Fiction as well as having written a story for the anthology ‘A little book of love.’
In 2016 I was invited to write a column in The Examiner, an Irish national newspaper. It is a weekly humorous piece in the Feelgood supplement called ‘It’s My Life.’
More recently I’ve decided to take my work to the next level and have begun to write my first book.
If you are new to my blog, you may not know ‘Daniel’s story’.
Danny was my friends fit, handsome, cheeky thirteen-year-old, when out of the blue he was diagnosed with leukemia. Ten months and a bone marrow transplant later we lost him in November 2013. There have been times since when I could find no words to write how I feel. However, this blog has helped me find those words, and Daniel remains a part of my blog.
That just about sums me up to date. Thank you for checking me out and I hope you enjoy reading “My Thoughts On A Page.”
