    I have enjoyed reading her books. Sorry to hear of her passing.

    Best-selling Irish author Maeve Binchy has died aged 72 after a short illness.

    Binchy, born in Dalkey, Co Dublin, has sold more than 40 million books. Her works were often set in Ireland and have been translated into 37 languages.

    They include The Lilac Bus as well as Tara Road and Circle of Friends, which were both adapted for screen.

    Binchy trained as a teacher before moving into journalism and writing, publishing her first novel - Light a Penny Candle - in 1982

    My mother's adoptive parents were from Wales. My grandmother read her books and, a voracious reader myself as a kid, I read them, as well.
