THE PAWNBROKER’S REWARD

Declan O’Rourke’s award-winning album, Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine, was released to critical acclaim in 2017. It illuminated an extraordinary series of eye-witness accounts, including the story of Pádraig and Cáit ua Buachalla. Four years on, in Declan’s meticulously researched literary debut, the story of the ua Buachalla family is woven into a powerful, multilayered work showing us the famine as it happened through the lens of a single town – Macroom, Co. Cork – and its environs. 
 

“A detailed and evocative telling of one of our nation’s darkest stories. The Pawnbroker’s Reward brings the famine to life and infuses it with a humanity often missing from historical accounts.”
– Ray Darcy, broadcaster, RTÉ Radio 1.

A powerful and gripping piece of writing from a born storyteller, a tale shaped with the lyricism of a songwriting giant.’
 Joseph O’Connor, novelist and author of ‘Star of the Sea’.

‘The narrative is just like his singing voice, full of powerful strength and compassion; a born storyteller in words as well as in music.’
 Michael Harding, author, columnist, playwright.

ARRIVALS

Declan’s new Paul Weller-produced Arrivals, the most emotionally raw and affecting album of his career, is out now via eastwest records. Recorded over six days at Black Barn studios in Surrey, with Weller producing, Arrivals sees the sound stripped back to Declan’s soulful and resonant voice, the virtuosic acoustic guitar playing for which he’s renowned and only the occasional sparse arrangement of strings and late-night drums bringing colour and light to the LP’s 10 songs.  

The album is available as a black vinyl, blue vinyl, compact disc or digitally.
