Where? Treo, 3835 Tulane Avenue, pub and restaurant

When? Friday, July 14th, 2017: 7-8:30 pm

Even if you don’t buy a book: stop by and have a drink and a bite to eat and visit with our class. Stephen Rea is an excellent teacher and the author of “Finn McCool’s Football Club: The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of a Pub Soccer Team in the City of the Dead.”

The authors of Bai Polar: Tom Warin, Matthew Haines, Rachel Henderson, Ashley Rouen, Daniel Zimmerman, Anne Reed.

Interested in taking one of Stephen Rea’s writing classes? The introductory class is held on Tuesday nights, the more advanced class is held on Thursday nights. Both classes are taught upstairs from Treo pub in the art gallery. Just ask Stephen for more information when you come to our reading/book signing.

Finn McCool’s Irish Pub Short Story Contest Winner 2013!

First Prize Center - Albany, NY - 09, Aug - 04

Rachel Henderson is the winner, for the second year in a row, of Finn McCool’s Short Story Contest.  Her winning story is and adventure tale titled, Ice Fall.  Rachel wins a keg of Guiness and some other goodies! Congrats, Rachel!

You can read her winning story on Finn McCool’s web site. You can also see the names of the second and third place winners, and the runners up, along with the titles of their stories.


Nah, I didn’t win anything. Rachel Henderson, and all the others, provided some very tough competition. The stories were judged by writers Ian McNulty and Stephen Rea.

Yeah, sure,  I’m jealous. I still had fun writing my story.  My story was titled, The Private Eye and the Diner Waitress, and was a bit of a humorous romp through New Orleans. I am hoping my story will be included in the venerable pub’s next  short story collection.
