Author Donal Ryan: 'Travellers were my neighbours, my schoolmates, my friends'

His talent for capturing the conversations, aspirations and tensions of small-town life has won him readers around the world. Award-winning author Donal Ryan's latest novel "All We Shall Know" takes one woman's encounters with the Traveller community as its starting point, and goes on to explore the themes of adultery and loneliness in rural Ireland.


Ryan tells us why he has the best day job possible and why it was so urgent for him to tell the story of the people he reads about in news headlines.
