Colin Broderick originally from County Tyrone, has lived in the United States for over thirty years. He has published four books. His first memoir, “Orangutan”, covers the twenty years he spent working construction out of the Bronx while struggling with alcoholism and addiction. His second memoir “That’s That” is a raw account of growing up in Northern Ireland at the height of The Troubles. His novel, “Church End” is a fictional account of the time he spent working construction in London in the late 1980’s. His latest book “The Writing Irish of New York” is a collection of essays detailing the history of Irish writing in America. He has also written and directed two feature movies. Emerald City tells the tale of a hard living crew of Irish construction workers in New York City, who have reached the end of the line. His latest movie “A Bend in the River” was recently nominated for two Irish Film and Television Awards and is now available everywhere on Amazon Prime, and You Tube. Colin lives in New Jersey with his wife and three kids.
