Aoife is a screenwriter from Dublin, currently working across the UK/Irish and European markets. She studied English literature at Trinity College Dublin where she specialized in Victorian and medieval texts. Subsequently, she went on to acquire an MA in Screenwriting for Film and TV at Ireland’s National Film School.

For her work, Aoife won the Writers Guild of Ireland Award for Screenwriting 2018. Subsequently, her feature script, an Irish Gothic horror based on Irish mythology, was greenlit for development funding with Screen Ireland.

With an avid interest in the past and its enduring significance, Aoife has a particular passion for historical subject matter. She is similarly drawn to coming of age narratives and exploring the possibilities of genre, whether that be horror, crime, or science-fiction.

Outside of writing for film and TV, Aoife has experience in journalism with by-lines in many national publications in Ireland such as Hotpress – Ireland’s leading arts and politics magazine.
