Congratulations to staff member Emily

Dr. Emily O'Flaherty, Dr. Norma Clarke, and Nick ToshMassive congratulations to staff member Dr. Emily O'Flaherty, who recently completed her Ph.D! We're incredibly proud of Emily, who  has been with Charlie Byrne's for many years, and is our expert on all things eighteenth-century. Emily's dissertation focused on the eighteenth-century Irish poet Mary Barber -- a close friend of Jonathan Swift's --and the changing role of patronage in the literary milieu of Dublin and London at that time. Emily is pictured with scholar, critic, and popular author Norma Clarke, and her son Nick Tosh, who dropped into Charlie Byrne's after Emily's viva examination.
