As part of its remit, the ICC provides a platform for Irish authors to launch, promote and discuss their work. While we enjoy showcasing established authors, we are very keen to encourage and support emerging writers by offering them a platform from which they can introduce and be interviewed about their work.

We are currently working with established writers, alongside creative writing courses, literary agents and publishing houses in this ongoing series which features an established author introducing and interviewing a debut writer.

For this, the fourth interview in the series we are pleased to present Una Mannion, who will discuss her debut novel, A Crooked Tree in conversation with Eoin McNamee.

The interview will be available to watch on this page on Wednesday 22nd September at 5pm.
