The Dublin Writers Festival is on this week, featuring Irish and international writers. The RTÉ Archives collection includes photographs of Irish writers at different stages of their careers, pictured in their studies, outdoors and in studio, being interviewed for RTÉ programmes. Take a look at some of these photos in our new online gallery of writers.

The photo above shows Nuala O'Faolain and Ulick O'Connor on 'The Late Late Show' in 1983. Both writers often contributed to RTÉ programmes. Nuala O'Faolain was involved in the ground-breaking 'Women Talking' and 'The Women's Programme' on RTÉ television in the 1980s. The Dublin Writers Festival is holding a celebration of her life and times on Thursday 23 May.
