 The Eye of the North

Sinéad O’Hart’s debut novel for children, The Eye of the North, was published in 2018. It tells the story of a friendless girl and a nameless boy who must work together to defeat a terrible creature at the heart of a glacier.

Dogsleds play a big part in the story, and so in this workshop, you'll find out about the history of dogsledding, including the heroic true story of the dogs and men who saved a whole town from destruction in 1925. You'll also get the chance to design, draw and name your own dogsled team, and write the story of their adventures on the ice. 

Sinéad was born and raised in the sunny south-east, but now lives with her family in Meath, where she is hard at work on her second novel.
