A Message from Our Patron, Author Donal Ryan

I’m deeply honoured to have been asked to serve as patron to the Dromineer Nenagh Literary Festival. This part of the world is steeped in all forms of narrative art, and this annual celebration of storytelling and literature lifts our beautiful town, its verdant hinterlands, and the voices of its people onto a national and global stage.

This year, as every year, writers and artists from all over the world, from debutantes to household names, join local chroniclers and custodians of our rich histories and our endless vaults of stories in a celebration of the unifying power of creativity, the infinite potential of the arts to recognise, confront and offer solutions to the problems of this fracturing world, to generate empathy, and to create and sustain friendships and peace.

The massive waves of energy and passion required to bring about this convergence of light and beauty on our beloved home are generated by a small committee of incredibly dedicated and talented people. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the volunteers who, year after year, give so much of themselves to ensure that North Tipperary takes its place proudly among the festival destinations of the world. Thank you for your generosity, your tireless spirit, and for your wonderful work.
