Introduction Ronald J. Kerrigan was born at an untimely age - the Bronze Age, to be precise - in the town of Belfast. This blog shows the range of his unpublished and unfinished works discovered in the buttonhole of his jacket after his untimely demise. One of his lifelong passions included travelling to imaginary locations during the frozen winter. Sadly, on a recent trip he was hit on the head by a snowflake. His last words were, "Whoops-a-daisy."
