The Years That Followed launch at Doolin Writers’ Weekend
With only a week to go, the anticipation is mounting…
On Friday night the 4th March, the Doolin Writers’ Weekend will kick off with a reading by Joe O’Connor.
Immediately afterwards, the festival will host not one, but two book launches.
Lia Mills will do the honours for my tenth novel The Years That Followed.
Lia’s own novel Fallen has been chosen as the title for ‘Two Cities One Book’ 2016 – a joint celebration between Dublin and Belfast. I’m very grateful that she has taken time out of her busy schedule to speak at the launch.
On the same evening, I will have the delightful task in turn of launching Anthony Glavin’s new novel, Colours Other Than Blue.
Last year, Doolin Writers’ Weekend was a packed, lively and stimulating few days, and this year promises to be no different.
The programme is a busy one: check it out here.
The festival atmosphere is always relaxed and informal. Writers and workshop participants meet in the friendly environs of Hotel Doolin where music and conversation continue long into the night.

Exciting, elegant, urgent, true – Catherine Dunne’s writing is all of these things, and a lot more. She really is one of Ireland’s best novelists.
