Dr. Paul Delaney

I joined the School of English in 2001, having completed my PhD as a Chevening scholar in the Centre for Colonial and Postcolonial Research at the University of Kent (Canterbury); prior to this I received a BA and MLitt research degree in English from Trinity College Dublin. In 2005 I was appointed Lecturer in Irish Writing in English.
