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 Image, 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 short film The Grass Ceiling, directed by Iseult Howlett and written by me, was screened at the 2019 Cork Film Festival.
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.
