About Me

Who I Am Is Who I Am

Hello, my name is Eidhne – and no, I was not named after the legendary Irish singer, Enya!

‘Eidhne’ apparently means ‘kernal of a nut or seed’, which is ironic because I’m actually allergic to nuts! My parents (my mother in particular), are huge fans of the Irish language and when I was born, wanted to give me an Irish name. Unfortunately for me, they decided to choose a name that nobody can pronounce right!

My writing career started off at the mere age of seven, when I found an old accounts book and decided to use it to scribble down a very bad story about a magic statue, an evil hypnotist and a missing stone. (Don’t ask!)

From there, I proceeded to write a diary, chronicalling the highs and lows of being a teenager, surviving the Leaving Cert and the life of a college student. Writing became an escape for me during the tough times of life and gradually, I realised that this is what I wanted to do as a career.

Now, I’m using this page to display my writings, what I research and what I can do with words. Please enjoy my work and take the time to let me know what you think!
