The Importance of Being Aisling

Job. Flat. Boyfriend. Tick. Tick. Tick.

Just when Aisling (seems) to be winning at life, she discovers it has other ideas:

Fired. Homeless. Dumped. Tick. Tick. Tick.

As her new life comes crashing down, Aisling is forced to move back home to Ballygobbard and her mam.

Is this the end of the world?

Or might returning to her roots remind this small-town girl just what she’d lost in the big city?

About the Author

Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen are Aislings. Maybe not complete Aislings but about 42%. The Aisling character was conceived in their Stoneybatter sitting room in 2008, when they began to observe the many traits, characteristics and quirks of a very particular type of Irish girl; one they identified around them and one they identified with.
