About this author

This is Eamon Loingsigh (sounds like Lynch), on St. Patrick's Day this year, Three Rooms Press released "Light of the Diddicoy," his third book of fiction. Within the Auld Irishtown trilogy, it is the first. It's about a 14-year old Irish immigrant, Liam Garrity, sent to Brooklyn to work on the docks just months before the Easter Rising of 1916. Liam soon becomes entangled in the Irish-American gang called "The White Hand" that rules the Brooklyn waterfront slums and pier neighborhoods with a ferocious, old world command by demanding loyalty and the ancient Irish code of silence.

His other works are a short novel and a book of poetry. They are: "An Affair of Concoctions" and "Love and Maladies," respectively.
