The making of Weave: A unique collaboration 

Praise for Weave

‘Weave is utterly stunning – a book to be savoured and cherished.’ — Louise O’Neill

‘From the dangers of existing in a callous, unequal modern world, to epic battles between good and evil and not-so-simple acts of kindness, this collection weaves past and present, self and other, into something haunting and, ultimately, life-affirming.’ — Jack Fennell.

‘A unique and creative blending of Irish indigenous traditions and contemporary life. This book bathes in the rhythms of the year, encountering the Other, ones’ own Otherness, and the richness of the Otherworld, a spiritual quest worthy of the times in which we live.’ — Mary Condren.

‘An exceptional piece of work, totally haunting and compelling.’ — Aideen Barry.

‘Beautiful Celtic stories told in a magical, culturally appropriate way.’ — Chrissy Donohue Ward
