The author has lived in Dublin 8, on the edge of the Liberties since she was a teenager. Her debut novel Ravelling, which won the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair in 2020, is the story of one year - Leaving Cert year - in the lives of five friends in a Dublin 8 school.

Deano, Hamza, Oisín, Benit and Karl deal with pressure from family, local hard men and lack of funds. All while trying to have the craic and to become the men they want to be.

Estelle Birdy and Ravelling were recently selected for the European Commission and European Writers Council Day of European Authors to work with Synge Street CBS, Dublin 8 on an EU initiative to get younger people reading.

Estelle Birdy will host a reading of her book at Kevin Street Library on Saturday 11th May. More info here
