About the Author

Áine Ní Ghlinn is a lecturer, journalist and writer. She has a BA (Irish and English) and a HDip in Education from University College, Dublin, a Diploma in Journalism from the London School of Journalism, and an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University.

She has written over thirty books – including four collections of poetry and an array of books for teenagers and young people.

In May 2020 Áine was announced as the sixth Laureate na nÓg, Ireland’s Children’s Literature Laureate. Áine is the first author who writes exclusively in Irish to be awarded the honour, and will hold the title from now until 2022.

Laureate na nÓg is an honour which was established in 2010 to engage young people with high quality literature and to underline the importance of children’s literature in our cultural and imaginative lives. It is an initiative of the Arts Council, administered by Children’s Books Ireland with the support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and Poetry Ireland.

She has won many awards for her work. Céard tá sa bhosca? (An Gúm, 2002) won the Gradam Chlann Lir in 2003. She won the Irish-language prize at the Strokestown poetry festival in 2003, the Irish-language prize at the Dun Laoghaire / Rathdown poetry competition in 2003, as well as the Foras na Gaeilge Award at Seachtain na Scríbhneoirí in Listowel in 2002. She was awarded an Oireachtas prizes for her books Fuadach (Cois Life, 2005) Tromluí (Cois Life, 2009) and Úbalonga (An Gúm, 2009). Brionglóidí & aistir eile (Cló Mhaigh Eo, 2008) was shortlisted for the Bisto prize and she won an IBBY award in 2010.

In 2012, she won an Oireachtas prize for her plays for children and her novel for teenagers, Daideo (Cois Life, 2014) was also awarded an Oireachtas prize in 2013. The same book was named Book of the Year for young people, 2014, Gradam Réics Carló. She was awarded Gradam Réics Carló again a couple of years later for her novel Hata Zú Mhamó (Cois Life, 2016).

Her story ‘Boscadán’ was awarded top prize for children’s stories at Comórtais Liteartha an Oireachtais 2017, and Cois Life published the subsequent book in 2019: Boscadán. LeabhairCOMHAR published in 2018 a collection (Fadó Riamh… Ag an Tús) which brings together stories from diverse cultures representing the rich tradition of mythology surrounding the creation of the world.
