Event description

Description

Patrick McCabe was born in 1955 in Clones, Co Monaghan. He trained to be a primary teacher at St Patrick’s College in Dublin and began teaching at Kingsbury special school, in London, in 1980. Teaching and exile would inform much of his work, most notably The Dead School (1995) and Breakfast on Pluto (1998). Equally, though, the inversions of small-town Ireland before the drastic social changes of the Celtic Tiger era – from snobbery to sentimentality, from extreme nationalism to mother fixations – are never left behind
