Sean Moncrieff

Author of The Angel of the Streetlamps



Sean Moncrieff’s first novel, Dublin, a needle-sharp, funny and scathing thriller, was published in May 2001 by Doubleday and reached the bestseller lists in Ireland. A non-fiction book, Stark Raving Rulers: twenty minor despots of the twenty-first century, was published in October 2004, followed by God, A Users’ Guide in 2006. A second novel, The History of Things, was published in 2007.

Moncrieff’s latest book, The Irish Paradox, packed with observations, revelations and intriguing detours into the murkier recesses of Irish history and culture, came out from Gill & Macmillan in 2015.

Sean hosts Moncrieff, an award winning radio show every afternoon on Newstalk in Ireland, and works on a new novel.

“Moncrieff is a master of the vicious aside, the canny comment and the funny twist, and he brings insight and intelligence to this novel of a damaged, confused and all too recognisable 21st century Ireland.” —Nuala Ní Chonchúir, author of Mother America
