About David Donohue


David is a music supervisor for film, a songwriter, and a former music journalist and arts television producer. Like Walter Speazlebud, he speaks and writes backwards effortlessly - and has even been known to make people go backwards. He has a high profile in Ireland for this talent, thanks to appearances on TV and radio, and hugely popular amongst schools and libraries. He is often stopped in the street by people asking him to talk backwards. In March 2004 he won an Arts Council Award worth 6,000 to become artist in residence for the 2004 Eigse Arts Festival in Carlow. His first book, a story for young children about Walter Speazlebud, published by O'Brien Press, was a bestseller in Ireland. David has a website that converts text into backwards writing: http://thejab.com/esrever.html He is developing a computer game based on spelling backwards. His rendition of 'Danny Boy' backwards ('yoB ynnaD') is available on CD. David lives in Co. Carlow, Ireland.
