Margaret Hickey

Margaret Hickey worked in London for many years, both as a freelance writer for The Times, The Financial Times, The Guardian and more, and also as food and drink editor of Country Living magazine.

She now lives beside the Shannon and is deputy director of the annual Shorelines Arts Festival as well as being a regular judge at the Strokestown International Poetry Festival. Her latest publication, Ireland's Green Larder, is three books in one - a history, a cookbook and a storybook.

Darina Allen says it is 'Enchantingly written...An authoritative resource as well as an entertaining and enlightening read.'

Chef Richard Corrigan says it is 'The only book on the social history of Ireland you'll ever need!'
