Writing & Literature

Noreen Fitzgerald


I found myself back in Ireland working for the Marist Fathers as a member of a school retreat team for some years. I returned to my hometown and started to care for my aging parents until their death. I’ve worked in our community centre enjoying the daily interaction with humanity in all its shapes and conditions. Humour, kindness and honesty form the stable stool upon which I sit, the basis of my approach to writing. The gift that theatre brings, the words alive in the air between performer and audience, proves my ongoing inspiration.

I have an interest in playwriting, short stories and performance monologue. This is something which has grown over time after I experienced hearing my work aloud at The Dock in Carrickon- Shannon, the town I was born in. I have lived in Oslo, Bahrain, London, the Isle of Wight and the Isle of Man working mainly as a nanny. I moved to New York where I had the privilege of working for Kurt Vonnegut for a period.
