In Memory of Philip Casey


Philip Casey, Dublin-based novelist, poet and champion of Irish writing, native of Gorey, Co Wexford, died at 5.20pm Sunday 4 February. We mourn the passing of a radiant spirit and friend of the Press, and salute his achievements. Lilliput published his first novel, The Fabulists, winner of the Listowel Book of the Year award in 1995. Sebastian Barry noted his ‘Mortally angelic writing’. He went on to be published by Picador in the UK and his poetry appeared with Dermot Bolger’s Raven Arts Press.
