The Lippy Kids collective was founded in the long, do-nothing days and nights of the Covid lockdown by Charlie Jermyn, Eoin ‘Quack’ McSweeney and Killian Down. The idea was originally for a website where Eoin and Killian could peddle their stories and hope for an audience beyond their doting aunts on Facebook. A sprinkle of ‘why stop there?’ broadened their horizons, Charlie jumped aboard and Lippy Kids was born. The collective is a vehicle for showcasing the work of young, short-story writers, actors, artists and musicians. We publish collections of original fiction four times a year, as well as the Lippy Kids podcast, which intermeshes readings of these stories with Irish music.
