Commenting, Event Organiser, the Heritage Officer of DLRCC, Tim Carey, said "We are delighted to be staging an event that celebrates the literary heritage of the county. Dun Laoghaire Rathdown is unique in being home to some of our most famous literary geniuses, including Joyce, Beckett, Flann O'Brien and Hugh Leonard while its contemporary literary landscape is second to none. Our intention with this festival is to celebrate this landscape, and put together an annual event that will become a 'must-do' event on the literary calendar, while also appealing to the constituents of the county".
