Welcome to my journal.

Bridget Walsh

I've written three historical novels about women and girls in the Irish Famine from 1845. The first book 'Daughters of the Famine Road' was published in March 2022.

The second, 'Daughters i Exile'  was published in October 2022.

'Daughter of Éireann' is the final novel published in June 2023.

Read about the strong women who inspired them and how real, and my imagined characters, survived a brutal Famine.

Covers for three novels about the Irish Famine.
