Celebrate the career of one of Ireland’s best-loved writers, as he discusses his work in an intimate and entertaining evening of sprawling conversation, with various special guest interviewers.

Roddy Doyle’s writing is immediately recognisable for his rich humour, unique use of dialogue and contemporary references. Credited with having reinvented the modern Irish novel, Roddy presents difficult critical social and historical issues in a concise and accessible form. His work inimitably portrays the experiences of everyday Irish life – and he has even managed to persuade quite a few people that Mustang Sally is a traditional Irish song.

With a chance to hear the man himself read from such books as The Woman Who Walked Into Doors, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha and A Star Called Henry, this is an evening not to be missed… unless there’s something better on the telly.

Roddy Doyle is the author of eleven novels, two collections of stories, a memoir of his parents, eight children’s books, a number of plays and screenplays, an opera translation, and co-wrote The Second Half with Roy Keane. His many awards include the Booker Prize for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha (1993), the Irish PEN Award (2009), and the BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Commitments (1991). Most recently, Roddy wrote the screenplay for the film Rosie, which heartbreakingly depicts Ireland’s homelessness crisis in some of his most moving and insightful work to date.
