Novelist & Playwright Cónal Creedon To Visit Cashel Library.

Ms Maura Barrett, [Branch Librarian (Cashel Library), Tipperary Co. Council Library Service], Reports: –

Mr Cónal Creedon, the noted Corkonian playwright, short story writer, novelist and documentary film maker (Yes, the brother of RTE’s John Creedon), will visit Cashel Library situated at Friar Street, Cashel, Co. Tipperary, on Saturday November 9th, 2019 at 2:00pm sharp.

Mr Creedon has an enormous capacity to entertain and make you laugh, while all of the while being insightful and observant. He is an established wordsmith, recognised not just in his native county of Cork, but also on national and international stages.

Mr Creedon will read from his latest novel ‘Begotten not made’, which he describes as a 21st Century Fairy Tale. This book weaves a very poignant story of a cleric’s unrequited love for a nun – although they only met once, in 1970, on the night that Dana won the Eurovision.

His prose is frequently hilarious and never, ever dull. “Cónal Creedon’s new novel puts a magic-realist twist on the tale of a cleric’s unrequited love for a nun”, writes one critic.

The author looks forward to taking questions from the audience and signing copies of his book on that afternoon. This is a unique opportunity to meet a truly noted Irish author up close and personal and be assured he promises not to disappoint.

The Perfect Chrismas present.

Make a note of the date and do go along to this event, with the knowledge that you can’t beat owning a book signed by the author – makes for a welcome Chrismas present.

Booking is essential for this FREE event, so do please telephone (062) 63825. You can find further information on Mr Creedon’s work on his website ConalCreedon.com.
