Maria Hill AKA MH Books (mariahilldublin) | 601 comments My Challenge is to read 24 books by Irish Authors throughout Ireland. I will fill this in as I go (Some selections may change halfway through the year :). My books should as much as possible be from my 2017 TBR or borrowed. I will put a line through when I read them.

2 books by authors from Connaught: Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo and Galway.

1. A Mayo author: George Moore A Drama in Muslin
2. A Leitrim author John McGahern That They May Face The Rising Sun

9 books by authors from Leinster (of which 4-5 should be Dublin if we are being fair): Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow

1. By six 12year old authors from Offaly: D.A. O'Connor The Custodian
2. From Kilkenny Helena Duggan A Place Called Perfect
3. Longford Belinda McKeon Solace
4. TBD
5. TBD
6. TBD

8. TBD

5 books by authors from Munster (there should be 2 from Cork to be fair): Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford

1. Cork Ciarán Collins The Gamal
2. Tipperary Donal Ryan All We Shall Know
3. Cork Edith Somerville and Martín Ross Some Experiences of an Irish R.M.
4. TBD

Wow Paul. Best of luck as some Irish authors can be hard to get hold of even in Ireland.
