Paul McNulty writes historical novels based on real events in 18th century Ireland. After a career in food engineering at University College Dublin, he studied ‘The genealogy of the Anglo-Norman Lynches who settled in Galway.’ The discovery of forgotten Irish stories inspired him to write a debut novel, Spellbound by Sibella based in County Mayo. Critiques from a writer’s group, The Corner Table, guide his writing.
Paul lives in Dublin with his wife, Treasa Ni Chonaola. They have three children, Dara, Nora and Meabh, and a grandchild, Lily Marie. He derives inspiration from the wild splendour of Connemara.
