Newtownstewart’s Pauline McSorley launches “Mighty Me” book…

Newtownstewart native, Pauline McSorley, has certainly chased her dream in the world of writing and illustration. Having been living and working as a freelance writer/illustrator in Achill Island Mayo for the past two years, Pauline has now just released her first book which provides a unique and very interesting concept.

Plans to bring the Book, entitled “Mighty Me; An Energy Friendly Guide to Understanding Your Get Up and Go” for a launch in County Tyrone is underway, with plans to have the first event in the library in Newtownstewart.

“I would like to launch in the Newtownstewart library, as a mechanism to get more people back in the door of this underused community asset”.

The book is aimed at children from ages 8-12, yet with content suitable for all ages.


Heralding from Newtownstewart, County Tyrone, Pauline now lives and works in Achill Island, on the Western tip of Ireland, balancing a love of the sea, surfing and the great outdoors with her artistic endeavours; exhibiting both locally and internationally.

“In truth, the book embraces theory of balancing understanding with action; learning about the mechanics of the body, the importance of nutrition, hydration and exercise; and detailing the relevance of all of these factors combined with regards our power to control and develop the body’s energy systems to make the most of ourselves and our innate potential, from the inside out!” commented Pauline when explaining the detail of the book.

“It is a little book with a very big message in terms of holistic well being.”

The book has already been making its mark here in Mayo, and indeed beyond, and the message is a most important one so is undoubtedly a very worthwhile visual read. Pauline is very excited though about bringing the book to her home county of Tyrone.

“It means an awful lot to me to bring it home persé. Having been heavily involved in the GAA at home, on playing and coaching terms, and likewise here in Achill, and with a background in sports development, I want to bring this book to life, through interactive workshops based around the book and the theory of physiology, exercise and play.”

Details of the Tyrone launch will be coming soon and for now you can check out this excellent book from the link below.
