Caitríona is a published children’s author, writing for Cló Iar-Chonnachta, Cló Mhuigh Eo and O’Brien Press. Her books for children have been very well received. She has won awards in the Oireachtas and her first book in the Rósmáire Trilogy, Ó Lúibíní Lú, was nominated for a Glen Dimplex Award. 

 

Her adaptation of Chekhov’s short-story, The Party, which she performed when eight months pregnant, was critically acclaimed and Eating Seals and Seagulls' Eggs -her first play with her own production company Little Wolf -  was described as a play of 'national interest. Mesmerising from start to finsh.',  Arena RTÉ1. For further information on this production, please visit the Little Wolf page.

 

Caitríona’s first radio play, Momento Mori was runner up in the PJ O’Connor Awards 2013 and her second An Chanáil was short-listed in 2014.
