Professional Details

Short Biography

Kieron Gribbon is a Belfast-based writer, photographer, digital illustrator, website creator, geography enthusiast and hill walker. He is also the founder of his own publishing company, Donard Press (www.donardpress.com), through which he plans to publish all his future book projects.

Kieron’s interest in Irish geography began at secondary school in 1985 when he first saw a copy of OSNI 1:50,000 Sheet 8 on the wall of his geography classroom. Since taking up walking as a leisure activity in 1996, Kieron has been exploring the Irish countryside on foot. These combined interests, plus his technical design and publishing skills enable him to single-handedly bring a book from initial concept right through to publication as a Donard Press title.

Kieron has been a member of the Outdoor Writers & Photographers Guild since 2010 and a member of the Geographical Society of Ireland since 2015.
