About Three Rock Books
David Flanagan is a climber, cyclist, writer and freelance journalist from Dublin, Ireland.
I have been climbing for nearly 20 years, focusing mostly on exploring and developing new bouldering problems and areas across Ireland. From the early days of my climbing career I kept notes and drew topos and maps of my discoveries, eventually I started to gather this information on a website, theshortspan.com. In 2010 I was made redundant from my boring computers job and decided that the time was right to publish a proper guide to Bouldering in Ireland. And just over a year later I self-published my first book, Bouldering in Ireland.
I formed Three Rock Books and in late September 2013 I published my second book Bouldering Essentials. I have also published a guide to the best of Irish rock climbing, Rock Climbing in Ireland, and a guide to Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, Exploring Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
I have just released (May 2018) Cycling in Ireland, a guide to the best of Irish cycling.
