Spike Island

Cork Crime Writers on Spike Island


Join Cork crime writers Michelle Dunne, Kevin Doyle, Catherine Kirwan, Amy Cronin and Tadhg Coakley, with PJ Coogan as moderator on the spectacular Spike Island for a night of crime. Booking Essential.

Where better than an abandoned prison for PJ Coogan to have a chat with Cork authors Michelle Dunne (While Nobody Is Watching and The Invisible), Kevin Doyle (A River of Bodies and To Keep a Bird Singing), Catherine Kirwan (Darkest Truth), Amy Cronin (Blinding Lies and Twisted Truth) and Tadhg Coakley (Whatever it Takes and The First Sunday in September).

A ferry will depart from Kennedy Pier in Cobh to Spike Island where there will be a short guided tour before meeting and greeting the authors prior to this truly unique event. Return to Cobh by ferry later in the evening. Join us for a night of crime in a truly spectacular setting for Culture Night 2021 brought to you by Arts Council Ireland in partnership with Cork County Council & Cork Arts.
