Gallows Hill Community Group was delighted to receive a donation of a quantity of Jim Cullinane’s most recent work ‘Imagine.’  This is a nice neat presentation and opens a door - if just a little bit – into the thoughts and beliefs of Jim as he takes us on a spiritual journey.

It is on sale at the Museum for a mere snatch.  In reference to ‘Imagine’, Jim reveals that ‘Finally, I’ve arrived at a place where I’m comfortable with the concept of God, not as something or someone in human form but a force, a source that touches all life – maybe not unlike a gentle breeze that sweeps across the planet touching all in its path, and if we allow, in good and empowering ways.  I believe also that this is an on-going process and that this physical life is but a tiny, teeny part of our journey. Our soul is immortal; the physical body will meteorite and die, but the soul journeys on.  My life has been a slow, slow process of understanding and accepting the uniqueness of each and every life, the potential that each and every one carries with us, the importance of being positive especially in our thoughts, which translate into reality and the life we live, the importance of love and forgiveness to ourselves and others, and the absolute importance of connecting with God.  This God force is always ready, willing, and more than able to answer our prayers’.

Jim’s book may look like a religious journey by the author, but it is more than this.  He takes us on a spiritual journey within the pages of his book, as he himself says, ‘there are many ways to God, and being involved and participating in church activities is but one of a multitude.’

Jim’s short stories have been published in the New Orleans Review, Toronto Irish news, and others.  His plays have been staged both In Dungarvan and New York.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Empire State College and a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing from Manhattan College.  He lives In Mount Kisko, New York with his wife Anne, neé Tyrell and they have four children.  Both Jim and Anne are originally from Abbeyside.

Jim’s book is certainly well worth a read and can be purchased at the Museum on Friary Street Dungarvan. But I warn you be quick!  Our phone number if you wish to order a copy is (058) 45960.
