irish history top trumps A7 25apr24 edits.jpg


In case you don’t know, ‘stair’ is the Irish word for history. Stair Wars: Irish History Card Game is a 'top-trumps style' card game featuring thirty six key figures in Irish history, from Saint Patrick to Bono. Pick your historical figure's best characteristic, scored from 1-100 in categories such as 'fame', 'impact', 'legacy' etc. and see if your opponent can beat that score. And don't worry if you get a villain, there's a 'force for ill' category so reprobates like Cromwell could still win you the game. You can buy it here.

SELFIE APR23-crop.jpg

My name is Eoin Stephens. I’m a native of Galway in the West of Ireland but I’ve lived in Dublin for the past thirty years. I’m married with two children, and I earn a living as a freelance graphic designer. I’ve been writing fiction for the past seven years. Thanks to my self-employed status and the support of my wife, I’m able to write every day. I’m finishing my third book right now and have plans for many more. As well as writing novels, I write and draw comic books. In 2023 I self-published my novel, Blood of the Wolf.  


When I was seventeen I was certain I was going become a comic book artist. Art college – and life in general – knocked that idea out of me. Recently I’ve fallen in love with the form again. Drawing comics is very technical so I’ve been quietly re-learning the craft over the last few years. These comics are presented chronologically – newest to oldest. I’m getting better all the time. Read them here.
