Órfhlaith Foyle at Bray Literary Festival


Bray Literary Festival begins on Culture Night, Friday 22 September and continues until Sunday 24 September. It is a festival for people who have a love of literature and features an eclectic mix of Ireland’s rising and established voices in poetry, fiction, memoir and music.

One of the voices featured at the festival is Órfhlaith Foyle. Órfhlaith is the author of Belios which was published by Lilliput Press. The novel chronicles a young man who is researching William Belios, an ex-missionary and once famous photographer. As the narrator spends time in Belios’ house in Oughterard, Co. Galway, he begins to unearth family secrets and a layered past. Órfhlaith’s poetry collection Red Riding Hood’s Dilemma and her two short story collections Somewhere in Minnesota and Clemency Browne Dreams of Gin were published by Arlen House. Órfhlaith will be speaking alongside Tanya Farrelly and Martin Malone on Saturday, 23 September 2017 in the Harbour Bar Bray at 5:15pm.Tickets available here.
