ABOUT LOTTIE THE RAVEN

AND THE REAL LIFE BELFAST RAVENS!

“School.  First love.  A bully on her team.  A pushy (but well-meaning!) Dad. A knack for finding herself in various scrapes on and off the pitch.  14 year old footballing genius Lottie McDermott has a lot on her plate.

Follow the Belfast-set adventures of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent as she navigates life as an accident-prone, socially awkward teen in this funny, heartfelt debut novel from writer and award-winning broadcaster David O’Reilly (aka Rigsy). 

Suitable for readers aged 9-14 and football fans of all ages!"


The football team in the novel is named after the real-life Belfast Ravens, which Rigsy and his Lisa founded together in 2017.  The club now have two teams playing in the official NIWFA here in Northern Ireland.
