Orla ní Dhúill

I’m a writer, born and bred in Dublin, Ireland. I work across a few different fields.

I write poetry and fiction, mostly stories about witches. My fiction work has mostly not reached the world except where I’d involved in D&D and tabletop RPG storytelling projects. My poetry is all over this blog and YouTube and I run a literary event with one of my closest friends, Jess, called the New Romantics monthly in Dublin.

My academic research is mostly in social media, environmentalism, and science communication in the Irish context but I also have a background in Irish history, the middle east, heritage management, environmental conservation and comic books. I also teach communications studies to undergrads.

I’m a lifelong activist on environmental, anti-war, social equity and left-wing causes as a queer, mentally ill, socialist Republican.

You can find me talking shit on Twitter, arguing about Irish folklore on Tumblr, or scribbling frantically in the corner of any old man pub in Dublin.

Imagine reading my CV.
