El Niño is the debut crime novel from Ballinrobe writer – Mick Donnellan. Having had an immensely successsful year in the theatre for 2011, Donnellan’s artistic merits are now also being recognised in the fiction world. His most popular Plays to date – Sunday Morning Coming Down, Shortcut to Halleljuah and Gun Metal Grey – have sold out across the country, inspiring excellent reviews and standing ovations from sell-out crowds.

The novel, set both in Ballinrobe and Galway city, was writtien shortly after Mick completed the M.A. in writing at NUIG in 2004. Since then, he’s been travelling and writing steadily. Having worked in between as a freelance travel writer, journalist, screenwriter and teacher, Mick is now delighted to add the name of novelist to the list.

Journalist Liam Horan will speak at the event and it will be followed by a reading from Mick and then a book signing.
