Angela Bourke writes in Irish and English, and taught at UCD until recently.  She won The Irish Times Literature Prize for non-fiction in 2000 with The Burning of Bridget Cleary: A True Story, and published Maeve Brennan: Homesick at The New Yorker in 2004.  New Island published her short-story collection in English, By Salt Water, in 1996, but she has published only a few stories in Irish, using the language of songs and folktales to work in her second language.
