One of Ireland’s most beloved authors Roisin Meaney launched her new book entitled The Street Where You Live in O’Mahony’s on O’Connell St last night.


The book is Meaney’s 14th Novel and is about a choir preparing for their end of Summer concert in a heatwave in Ireland.

Roisin Meaney was born in Listowel, Co Kerry, She has lived in the US, Canada, Africa and Europe but is now based in Limerick, Ireland.

This Number One bestselling author is a consistent presence on the Irish bestseller list and she is the author of thirteen novels including three stand- alone novels set in the fictional island off the west coast of Ireland: One Summer, After the Wedding and I’ll Be Home for Christmas.

Her other bestsellers include: The Last Week of May, The People Next Door, Half Seven on a Thursday, Love in the Making, The Things We Do For Love, Something in Common, Two Fridays in April and The Reunion.

Speaking at the event Roisin Meaney said: “Thanks to everyone who come time and time again, I really appreciate you coming. I know some of you have travelled from great distances and I am so happy to see you.”

Meaney’s editor, Ciara Dorley said: “We couldn’t be happier to work with Roisin, she’s by far and away one of the most talented authors in the world today. I feel like every time I come to a launch I say this is one of her best books but ‘The Street Where You Live’ really is one of her best books.”

In the Irish Independent review of ‘The Street Where You Live’ they said: “A cracking yarn, Meaney can excavate the core of our human failings and present it to us, mirror-like, on the page, which makes her utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible.”
