Rebecca Quin aka Becky Lynch would probably fit in this category as well.

Thank you! I read The Dark years ago and could not remember the name of the author or get any returns on googling it either. Phenomenal book for a little over a fiver on Kindle, for anyone interested - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-John-M...+dark+mcgahern

(Amazon.com synopsis, the Amazon.co.uk one is very sparse)
The Dark, widely acclaimed, yet infamously banned, is John McGahern’s sensitive, perceptive, and beautifully written portrayal of a young man’s coming-of-age in rural Ireland. Imaginative and introverted, the boy is successful in school, but bitterly confused by the guilt-inducing questions he endures from the priests who should be his venerated guides. His relationship with his bullying, bigoted, widowed father is similarly conflicted — touched with both deep love and carefully suppressed hatred. When he must leave home to further his education, their relationship is drawn to an emotional climax that teaches both father and son some of the most intricate truths about manhood.

Leprechauns. Irish Americans made them what they are today. That's why they're always dressed like 19th C bumpkins.

Music producer, billionaire* and famously booted out of boyzone just before they hit the big time, Mark Walton. Oh yeah, his ex pleaded guilty to murdering an au pair in London. Nothing to do with Walton.
