Awesome Contemporary Irish Literature to read this St. Patrick’s Day

Marian Keyes is one of my fav contemporary writers! The fact that she’s Irish just makes her even better (I’m biased though lol) This is a great list of contemporary Irish Authors to check out 🙂

When people think of Irish writers they usually think of James Joyce, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, or Roddy Doyle. Basically, they think of the old guys but we have a lot more to offer than that.

Avoid the crowds this St. Patrick’s Day and curl up with one of these great contemporary Irish books.

Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling: Just a Small-Town Girl Living in a Notions World Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling by Emer McLysaght, Sarah Breen

Soon to be made into a film, Oh My God, What a complete Aisling is the story of a particular type of Irish girl. “We all know an Aisling**. She’s your stereotypical friend who carries her court shoes to work in a bag while pounding the pavement with her MBTs on the walk in from Rathmines.” Aisling has stepped out from her Facebook group roots and taken the country by storm! The book has been hugely popular and it’s not hard to see why.
