Scott De Buitléir
Born in London to Irish parents, I was raised in Clontarf in Dublin, and studied Celtic languages at University College Dublin. Since I was 15, I had a great interest in radio broadcasting and journalism, and before I moved full-time into marketing in 2015, I worked for the likes of BBC Northern Ireland, RTÉ Radio, and Spin1038, and launched by own digital publication, EILE Magazine. Despite the career change, I continue to write opinion articles on political and social issues, and I returned to podcasting at the end of 2020.
My first short story was published in an Irish-language newspaper in 2006, at the age of 18. Since then, I’ve read poetry at literary festivals across Ireland and the UK, and my fours books (including a novella, two works of non-fiction, and a poetry collection) are available in paperback and eBook format worldwide.
As I’ve settled down in Cork with my partner, I’ve also gotten involved with politics with the Social Democrats. I am currently Secretary of the Cork South Central constituency branch of the party, and campaign on issues relating to the Irish language and Gaeltacht communities.
