About Trish Groves

Hello there! I’m Trish, a writer and creative digital media producer, based in Ireland.

The pandemic gave me the opportunity to pivot to a new career, so I’m launching a new business, Five Trees Digital, in May 2021.

When I’m not writing, you’ll find me knitting, watching science fiction and playing with my cats. Possibly all at the same time.


Qualifications

  • Post-Graduate Certificate in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship from Trinity College Dublin, 2021.
  • Diploma in Online Marketing and Digital Strategy from Griffith College Dublin, 2014.
  • MA (Hons) in Scriptwriting from Dun Laoghaire IADT, 2001

Writing

  • Member of the Society of Authors.
  • Member of the Writers’ Guild of Ireland.
  • Author of ‘Petticoat Rebellion – The Anna Parnell Story‘ (The Mercier Press, 2009). ‘Petticoat Rebellion’ was featured as the Irish Times Book of the Day, and was selected from over 300 submissions for ‘Great Irish Book Week‘ that same year.

Short Filmmaking

My quirky, short film ‘Rapunzel – The Blonde Years‘, produced through Screen Ireland’s ‘Virtual Cinema’ scheme, has had over 730,000 hits on YouTube.

It has also been used as an education resource in schools for discussing gender and development. 

Funders

I have also been lucky enough to have been funded by both Screen Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland.

This included a placement with the No Strings Productions team in the Henson Carriage in New York for the filming of the No Strings Kibing gender equality project.
