Snowflake: A celebration

April 18 at 7:00 pm


Join us for a special evening when author Louise Nealon will be in conversation with RTE broadcaster, Rick O’Shea about her novel Snowflake, how she was inspired to write it and what interests her for future writing projects.

The night will include dramatised readings from Snowflake by Caroline Quinn as Debbie, and Steve Wall as Billy, as well as music performances from Maija Sophia.


Caroline Quinn hails from Meath and is quickly becoming well known and highly regarded for her acting, but also for writing and directing films and shorts.  Since 2020, Caroline has appeared in Dating Amber, You’ve Ruined Everything and ‘Just Us’ (Cian Hamilton) along with Warts and All (Pat Shortt) and the much anticipated feature Blurred Lines (Mark Agar).  Caroline has been seeing great success in the festival circuit after writing, directing and starring in her own pilot What Could Go Wrong.

Steve Wall is an Irish musician and actor. He is the lead singer and songwriter with legendary Irish bands The Walls and The Stunning and is rapidly building up a diverse list of film and television credits since he returned to acting in 2012. With both bands he has penned numerous hit songs: Brewing up a Storm; Half Past Two; Romeo’s on Fire; To the Bright and Shining Sun, to name just a few. On the screen, he recently featured as part of the lead cast in The English, a 6-part western series starring Emily Blunt  for BBC/Amazon. Other recent credits include the IRA man Quinn in the 2023 feature film Dead Shot (Sky Movies); Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves (HBO); Tin Star (Sky); Irish comedy-drama The South Westerlies (Deadpan/RTE).
