  5. My 8 years old son Bono and I came to Ireland from Croatia for a visit, and took “Molly O’Malley and the Leprechaun” at the Dublin Library. We both enjoyed it tremendously, and are looking forward to our trip to Kinvara in Galway even more now! We hope to visit the places you wrote so charmingly about in your book! My son is asking me to bye other books about Molly to bring them home! Thank you! Iva

  6. I’m glad you enjoyed it! You can get my books at Amazon, including Kindle versions. Molly O’Malley and the Pirate Queen has scenes from Kinvara and other sites up to Clew Bay.
