About this event

Dermot Bolger is one of Ireland’s best known writers. His fourteen novels include The Journey Home, The Family on Paradise Pier, The Lonely Sea and Sky and, most recently, An Ark of Light. His debut play, The Lament for Arthur Cleary, received the Samuel Beckett Award. Numerous other plays include an adaptation of Joyce’s Ulysses and, most recently, Last Orders at the Dockside, both staged by The Abbey Theatre. His tenth poetry collection, Other People’s Lives, will appear in 2022. In 2012 Bolger was named Commentator of the Year at the Irish Newspaper Awards. In 2020 – forty-four years after David Marcus published his first short story in The Irish Press while he was still a schoolboy – Bolger fulfilled a long standing ambition by finally publishing his debut collection of short stories, Secrets Never Told.

Éilís Ní Dhuibhne was born in Dublin. Author of more than thirty books, her work includes The Dancers Dancing, The Shelter of Neighbours, and Fox, Swallow, Scarecrow. Her most recent books are Twelve Thousand Days: A Memoir (shortlisted for the Michel Déon Award 2020), Little Red and Other Stories (Blackstaff 2020), and Look! It’s a Woman Writer. Irish Literary Feminisms 1970-2020 (ed.) (Arlen House, 2021) She has published seven collections of short stories and has been the recipient of many literary awards, most recently the Pen Award for an Outstanding Contribution to Irish Literature, and a Hennessy Hall of Fame Award. In Autumn 2020 she held the prestigious Burns Scholarship at Boston College. She is a member of Aosdána, and President of the Folklore of Ireland Society.

Nuala O'Connor (moderator) lives in Co. Galway. In 2019 she won the James Joyce Quarterly prize for a story called ‘Ulysses’, the missing story from Dubliners. Her novel NORA, about Nora Barnacle, wife and muse to James Joyce, is out now in the USA, Ireland, the UK, and Germany. Nuala is editor at flash fiction e-zine Splonk.
