P.J. Fahy had been involved for 10 years in the promotion of poetry and acoustic music in London when he died tragically following an accident at the age of 54. He had realeaced a CD - Freshtracks and worked tirelessly as the London Events Programmer for Survivors' Poetry. He is described as an 'Off the wall singer, poet and ructioneer' on Pirate Jenny's website. He ran the London acoustic music and poetry club, Ructions.

Ann Dalton began her creative journey as a poetry performer in the coffee houses of London. She first lured her poetry from a bottom drawer onto the stage of a well-known London acoustic music and poetry club, Ructions, run by the late troubadour, P. J. Fahy. She went on to co-found and run a weekly performance club and to facilitate poetry workshops for survivors of the mental health system. She discovered her love for radio when she presented and produced a biographical documentary for London’s Resonance FM. After 10 years in London, she returned to her native Cork, gained a distinction in BTEC Creative Media Production and the rest, as they say, is sonic history!
Ann obtained funding from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland for her children's radio dramas, The Adventures of the Stripy Pyjamas and Starboy. Both were recorded at RTE studios in Cork with a professional cast (otherwise known as a hugely talented bunch!) directed by Judie Chalmers and edited by Rupert MacCarthy-Morrogh. Writing for children can be a humbling experience, so no time for Ann to relish in 'celebrity' status! She began researching the benefits of audio as a method of learning for Primary School Children. She developed and delivered audio drama workshops to promote active listening skills. She was a finalist in the Spring Poetry Competition at www.originalwriting.ie, wrote her first adult radio drama and adapted one of her dramas into a children's book.
