On Wednesday October 30th the Irish Independent is publishing Halcyon - an exciting new monthly lifestyle magazine for our more mature readers. Halcyon features essays, travel, books, history, style, golf and other leisure pursuits as well as interviews with the most interesting celebrities.
On the cover of the inaugural issue is Anne Doyle, who talks to Ken Sweeney about her adventures in retirement and how her job in RTE helped stave off the black moods that sometimes plagued her.
In the keynote essay, Dermot Bolger tells the story of his friendship with Sheila Fitzgerald, the wonderful woman 55 years his senior who nurtured his dream of becoming a writer and taught him how to grasp the joy at the core of life.
In travel, Marianne Gorman writes about discovering a passion for long-haul travel at 60 and Eoghan Corry has the five best winter cruises and sun holidays.
IN golf, Liam Kelly talks to Paul McGinley about his beloved Grange golf club and the legendary Dr David Sheahan, who in 1962 became the first amateur to win a professional event.
