Celebrating Living Irish Writers

Happy St Patrick's Day

Seeing as it’s St Patrick’s Day, I’m adding an extra post this week. Ireland is known for being a nation of storytellers, and is also famous for its rich literary heritage. But, I’d like to celebrate some of the outstanding living Irish writers that are entertaining the world with their wit, charm and literary talent. The writers that helped Dublin to earn UNESCO City of Literature status.

Having blogged for many Irish Literary festivals, including Cork International Short Story Festival and Listowel Writers’ Week, I’ve been lucky enough to meet, chat with and interview some of Ireland’s greats.

So, if you’ve a bit of time on your hands and would like to read some cracking advice and tidbits from top Irish writers, click on the relevant name below.
