I’m a writer and editor based in Cork. My fiction has appeared in Granta, The Dublin Review, gorse, The Stinging Fly, and the anthologies The Long Gaze Back (New Island) and Town & Country (Faber). I’m represented by Lucy Luck at Conville & Walsh. A book for young readers, Great Irish Sports Stars: Cora Staunton, was published by O’Brien Press in August 2019.
Essays and journalism have appeared in Stranger’s Guide, Winter Papers, the Irish Independent and the Irish Times. I write an occasional sports column for the Irish Examiner, mostly about the GAA (I’m a lifelong camogie player). I’ve appeared as a talking head on the RTE documentary series The Game. The Grass Ceiling, a short film by Iseult Howlett based on my sports writing, will be screened at the Cork Film Festival 2019.
I’m co-editor and designer of Banshee, a literary journal and independent press. I’ve edited and designed several educational titles for Forum Publications, and occasionally work as a freelance typesetter.
