Irish crime writers have long been established on the international stage as bestsellers and award winners and in the last ten years the rise of Emerald Noir has seemed unstoppable. According to Val McDermid, one of the biggest names in modern crime writing, 'celtic crime' has sprung up during a time of seismic change in Ireland, which has included the rise and fall of the Celtic Tiger and the Good Friday Agreement.

According to McDermid, 'That's given Irish writers a challenge of material. You really have got something to write about'.

This panel discussion will feature three of the most exciting voices currently writing in the genre: Eoin McNamee, author of 'Resurrection Man'; Liz Nugent, whose recent bestseller 'Lying In Wait' is taking the US market by storm and has won Best Read in the Richard & Judy Book Club; and Declan Burke, crime writer and editor of 'Trouble Is Our Business', a recent anthology of Irish crime writing.

The event will be hosted by David Torrens from No Alibis Bookstore in Belfast.
