We also welcome open donations to the Centre. If you would like to make a donation, please read more about our Friends Membership tier first and if you would like to donate more than €250, please contact

At present, we have two Friend Members and are extremely grateful to them for their continuous support and encouragement. 

- Jack Harte, writer and founder of the Irish Writers Centre

- Jack Gilligan, former DCC Arts Officer and former chairperson of the Board of the Irish Writers Centre 

We hope to grow this list over the coming years and if you, too, would like to become a Friend of the IWC, we'd love to hear from you.
