Martin Doyle in conversation about growing up during The Troubles with Tomás Kenny at Kennys Bookshop

3rd November @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Martin Doyle, Books Editor of The Irish Times, will be in Kennys Bookshop on Friday the 3rd of November to join Tomás Kenny in conversation about his new book, Dirty Linen: The Troubles in My Home Place. This event is free but ticketed, as space is limited.

Doyle grew up during The Troubles, and Dirty Linen is a personal, intimate history of this period seen through the microcosm of a single rural parish, the author’s own – Tullylish in Co. Down, which is part of both the Linen Triangle – heartland of the North’s defining industry – and the Murder Triangle – the Badlands devastated by paramilitary violence.

Free tickets are available via Kennys Bookshop or Eventbrite.
