Rosaleen McDonagh writes fearlessly about a diverse experience of being Irish. Unsettled explores racism, ableism, abuse, and resistance as well as the bonds of community, family, and friends. As an Irish Traveller writing from a feminist perspective, McDonagh’s essays are rich and complex, raw and honest, and, above all else, uncompromising.

“Beautifully written, this book beats back the darkness. It brings us all further on” – Anne Enright

About the author:
Rosaleen McDonagh is a playwright and a member of Aosdána. Her most recent plays commissioned are Walls and Windows for the Abbey Theatre and Contentious Spaces for the Project Arts Centre.
