IRISH CRIME WRITER [site under reconstruction]

Cormac Millar lives in Dublin where, as Cormac Ó Cuilleanáin, he taught in Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university. A translator and academic author, he took to crime in his middle years. His first novel, An Irish Solution (Penguin) got excellent reviews and reader reactions. A second novel, The Grounds, was set in a deeply dysfunctional campus (quite unlike Trinity). Again, the book was well received. [see the Reviews link above.] Cormac was a contributor to the Sister Caravaggio project. Having taught some courses and written some essays on crime fiction, he has finally gone back to the real thing. [Author photograph by Mark McCall.]

An Irish Solution is available online in Kindle and in paperback. It was translated and published in Italian by Comma22, Bologna.


Cormac Millar appeared at the Capital Crimes Round Table in Cardiff University and contributed to the Capital Crimes book. He discussed varieties of noir with Polish author Marek Krajewski at the Irish Writers' Centre, and took part in book festivals and other events in Ireland, France and Italy. He was interrogated for Declan Burke's 'Crime Always Pays' blog (click here). His second book was launched by Trinity College Senator David Norris. He wrote an essay for Down These Green Streets, an anthology by Irish crime writers edited by Declan Burke.
