About


B&W2My name is Siobhan Devoy and I am a freelance journalist based in Dublin, Ireland.

I write for the Irish Daily Star, Books Ireland magazine and Headstuff.org.

I love a good story be it a novel, poem, news article, film or TV programme. It doesn’t matter what the theme or plot is – if it’s written well I’ll be reading it!

The name of my blog Chestnut Tree Cafe is a nod to one of my all-time favourite writers, George Orwell. The Chestnut Tree Cafe is a fictional cafe in his masterpiece Nineteen Eighty-Four. Any fans of this novel will know that it is the cafe where Winston and Julia frequent and it is also pivotal in the closing pages of the book…

So pour yourself a coffee (or something a little stronger), pull up a chair and enjoy the read!
