ENNISCORTHY AUTHOR Joe Murphy is causing quite a stir with his new novel 'Dead Dogs'. The writer who cut his teeth with the 1798 swashbuckler ' Tomorrow the Barrow We'll Cross' issued last year has come more up to date with his latest effort.

Released by Liberties Press, the 'Dead Dogs' is described by the publishers as 'odd, witty and darkly hilarious', while the reviewer in the ' Sunday Times' commended it as ' hard boiled'. It has an undeniably Enniscorthy setting, complete with Strawberry Fair.

Joe Murphy is son of Philip and Kathleen Murphy from Moran Park, though he now resides in Drogheda where he has worked as a teacher for several years. Born in 1979, his own second level education was received at Enniscorthy Vocational College.
