WW II Submarine Commander
and author
Bill King at his
Oranmore Castle in Galway with
stylish Brenna Briggs in 2002. He
died in September 2012 at age
102 and was the oldest surviving
submarine commander from
World War Two.  RIP
Brenna Briggs is the author of the
Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries
which THE IRISH WORLD in London
has compared to Enid Blyton's
adventure series "if you throw in a lot
more reels and hornpipes." Briggs
was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
into an Irish American family where
she thought for many years that
cookies with green icing on Saint
Patrick's Day was the best thing
about being Irish.

She has published Liffey Rivers short
stories in Irish Dancing and Culture
Magazine and essays in Hornpipe
Magazine, The Irish American Post,
The Sligo Quarterly, BellaOnline,
Celtic Canada Magazine and many
other  Irish American magazines and
newspapers.
