Sharon Thompson shares her top three Irish books with us.
By Louise O`Neill
When Sarah falls for Matthew, she falls hard.
So it doesn’t matter that he’s twenty years older. That he sees her only in secret.
That, slowly but surely, she’s sacrificing everything else in her life to be with him.
Sarah’s friends are worried. Her father can’t understand how she could
allow herself to be used like this. And she’s on the verge of losing her job.
But Sarah can’t help it. She is addicted to being desired by Matthew.
And love is supposed to hurt.

Brian McDermott has built a national reputation as a chef on one simple belief – that tasty, healthy food based around traditional recipes and local produce is something
every family can make and enjoy.
As one of twelve children growing up in Burt in County Donegal, the focal point of the family was always his mother’s kitchen table, and that childhood memory of the family coming together and connecting over her home cooking continues to inspire Brian as he shares his own passion for food with others.
Whether it’s cooking freshly-caught mussels for the fishermen at Greencastle pier or sharing his skills with others at his cookery school.
