Irish crime writers have long been established on the international stage as bestsellers and award winners and since the Northern Ireland ceasefire, the rise of Emerald Noir has been unstoppable.

This panel discussion will explore the rise of Irish crime fiction and will feature some of the strongest voices currently writing in the genre:

Eoin McNamee, author of Resurrection Man; Liz Nugent, whose recent bestseller Lying in Wait is taking the US market by storm and has won Best Read in the Richard & Judy Book Club and Declan Burke, crime writer and editor of Trouble is Our Business, a recent anthology of Irish crime writing.


‘A shadow bobbed in the window.

He was snapping the carrier spring

Over the ledger. His boot pushed off

And the bicycle ticked, ticked, ticked’

Seamus Heaney, A Constable Calls
