BIOGRAPHY

Paul B McNulty writes historical fiction based on real events in 18th century Ireland. His credentials include editorship of a student magazine, "The Anvil", followed by publication of scientific and popular papers during a career in Biosystems Engineering at University College Dublin. After retirement, he studied "The Genealogy of the Anglo-Norman Lynches who Settled in Galway" which unearthed a treasure-trove of stories. His first novel, "Spellbound by Sibella", was published in 2013 by Club Lighthouse CLP, Canada who published his second novel "The Abduction of Anne O’Donel" in 2014 and his third novel "A Story of the Bodkin Murders" in 2015. Paul has also published his genealogical research in 2013, a novella, "A Rebel Romance" in 2014, "Food and Food-Related Issues" in 2016 and "A Girl Called May" in 2018 all with CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.

His literary experience inspired him to write plays based on extracts from his writings. UCD Dramatic Society included a reading of his play "Spellbound by Sibella" in their Theatre Festival in November 2014. In October 2015, it received favourable reviews from the Theatre Development Centre, Cork and The Abbey Theatre. It is now on Amazon since 1917. In response to a call from the UCD Dramsoc Mini Plays Festival, Paul submitted a five-minute play "Elopement" which was staged on 14-16 October 2015. He has also written a second play based on an extract from his novel "The Abduction of Anne O’Donel". His third play "1798: A Rebel Romance" was staged as part of the Semester 3 programme of UCD Dramsoc on 18-22 April 2016. He has just completed his fourth play "The Trial of Young John" in the format of a court-room drama.

Paul lives in Dublin with his wife, three children and three grandchildren. The wild splendour of Mayo and Connemara inspires his writing. Links to social media include Facebook and Twitter. His website address is https://ucd.academia.edu/PaulMcNulty

      • Everything. Firstly I’d chose different parents. Secondly I’d be born into a family who wanted to educate their children. I feel education is so important to a child’s wellbeing and my children were educated and sitting very comfortable in their lives. Nonetheless my life circumstances have put me on this path. To write but been dyslexic has brought about its challenges.
