Literary Death Match Returns

Exciting news has reached me from the outside world. I’ve come out of hiding in non-blog land to bring you wonderful tidings.

This Wednesday, if you’re not too busy sitting in watching endless episodes of Criminal Minds (hey, not judging, that’s what I usually do on Wednesday nights), you can meet some of Ireland’s newest, freshest and fiercest literary talent. Yup, Literary Death Match returns to Dubland. Kicking off from 8.15 at The Workman’s Club, it promises to be a fun night.

Meet the judges – Clare Cullen, Colm O’Regan and John Butler. These guys’ll be casting their votes on the following up and coming literary voices:

Kalle Ryan – of BrownBreadMixtape fame.

Sean Mahoney – stalk him up here.

Deirdre Sullivan, you’ll find her at, which interestingly has an ‘adult content warning’ type thing when you visit the site – what a first impression!

Abby Oliviera – a Scottish – Irish poet.

Anyways, these four writers will duel, performing their own literary work and providing endless amounts of entertainment. The last and only other time I’ve been to a Literary Death Match, I was highly entertained and delighted to find that someone had thought up of such a unique idea and presented it in such an enthusiastic manner. Well done to Todd Zuniga for creating such an imaginative and fun night out that’s a great balance between super-geeky and irresistibly cool.

The deets:

It’s €7 if you pre-order your tickets here, but if you’re not that organised, it’s €10 on the door. Drinkies after!
