Maeve Higgins is a comedian and writer from Cobh. She writes a weekly column for The Irish Times about her dream life and ideal world. It’s funny! Maeve made her own comedy/cookery series for RTE with her sister Lilly called ‘Fancy Vittles’. It was a cult hit! She also writes a regular diary piece for RTE Radio 1’s Weekend on One show. Her first book, a collection of essays entitled ‘We have a good time...don’t we?’ was published by Hachette last year and nominated for Best Newcomer in The Irish Book Awards. Maeve has part ownership of a very gentle Alsation.
