The Hollow weaves tale of consequences and supernatural things

Limerick native Angie Togher has just published her second novel, 'The Hollow'.

Limerick native Angie Togher has just self-published her second novel, ‘The Hollow’.

Angie, of Sixmilebridge, was born and raised in Limerick City.  When she took early retirement a few years ago, she began writing in earnest and published her first book, ‘Old, Unhappy, Far Off Things’ in March 2021 with a lot of help and support from her family, local writer Dominic Taylor, and the Limerick Writers’ Centre.

“It is virtually impossible to get a book published these days through a publishing house, most people have to go down the road of self-publishing. I was lucky with all the help I received, and in many ways it gives a writer more control over the process by having their book published in this way,” Angie told the Limerick Post.

The Hollow is based in Limerick City and Kilkee, County Clare, and is the story of a year in the life of a group of women who met in secondary school.

The supernatural story tells the sale of one of the group, Lauren, who alienated herself from the others by the repercussions of her actions which subsequently have a lasting impact on the others. The book is set in 1990, with the backdrop of Italia ’90 and its aftermath.
