Move Over James Joyce – The Ladies of Ireland Are on It This Month

Each year as the calendar’s page flips to March, showers of green shamrocks and leaping loads of leprechauns spread across our social media feeds. And why not? Thanks to Saint Patrick, everybody is Irish in March.

This month, however, is more than green beer and chocolate coins. March is Women’s History Month. This year’s theme is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.” In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day and supporting other women creatives, I’d like to encourage you to explore the works of splendid Irish Women Authors.

Three Irish Women Writers to Read This March

  • Maeve Binchy – Circle of Friends
  • Tana French – In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad Book 1)
  • Elizabeth Bowen – Death of the Heart

And Remember…

May you have love that never ends,

Lots of money, and lots of friends.

Health be yours, whatever you do,

And may God send many blessings to you!

P.S. – may you have the wisdom and good fortune to read yarns by Irish Women Writers too.
