Ellen Ryan

Girls Who Slay Monsters

Venue: Eureka

Girls Who Slay Monsters brings the female heroes of Irish mythology vividly to life From Éire, Ireland’s fierce namesake, and Bé Binn, a giant who overcame her bullies, to Badb, a gleefully gruesome death prophet, and Bé Mannair, a spy who challenged an entire army. These are goddesses of many shapes, skin shades and sizes, from every corner of ancient Ireland, whose daring still inspires today. Join Ellen in her workshop and perhaps you too can become a latter-day monster-slayer.  Girls Who Slay Monsters was the Children’s (Senior) Book of the year at the 2022 Irish Book Awards.
