Niamh Boyce

Niamh Boyce was named Newcomer of the Year at the Irish Book Awards in 2013 for her debut novel The Herbalist, which was set in 1930s rural Ireland. Her most recent novel, Her Kind, transports readers back to 14th century Kilkenny and explores the fascinating and dark subject of Ireland’s first witch trials.

Niamh will be reading and talking about her work and inspiration in the atmospheric Nenagh Castle, at the closing event of the festival, on Sunday 6 October.
