CLUAS Writers: profile of Aidan Curran
Aidan's formative musical experience was a part-time job involving long lonely hours with only a jukebox for company. 'Dancing Queen' by Abba was number one on the day he was born and he's quite happy about this. He likes books, art, the number 17, the two chimneys at Ringsend in Dublin bay and (as one ex-girlfriend put it) is very 'emotional' about football. He has run a marathon and plans to do so again. Thanks to him, more and more French people are now speaking English with a Kerry accent.
