Ireland (b.1952)

Evelyn Conlon - Born in Monaghan and educated there, she left in 1970 to briefly attend UCD. She was a winner of the European Schools Day essay competition in 1969 and had her first stories published at the age of seventeen in New Irish Writing, Irish Press. At the age of nineteen she emigrated to Australia, sailing by ship to Sydney. Research for her present work has taken her back to Australia, which she "delightedly managed to put back on my map, over twenty years after leaving". She now lives in Dublin.
