Dervla Murphy at 90

“If you’re fearless, you don’t need courage,” says Dervla Murphy (right), who turns 90 today, in an interview with Ethel Crowley in the Irish Examiner. If you’d like to hear more from the redoubtable Dervla, I recommend Philip Watson’s 2018 interview for The Guardian, Sue Lawley’s in 1993 for Desert Island Discs, and my own interview from 2015. More recently, Dervla figures in a chapter in Tim Hannigan’s excellent The Travel Writing Tribe, a book from which travel writers, as well as travel readers, can draw pleasure and profit. Then, of course, there are her own books, published by Eland.
