a Bilingual Event in English and Irish
Date: Sat 04 March
Venue: Temple Gate Hotel
Join us for a lively discussion of Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s Cré na Cille considered by many a great Irish classic and recently translated by panellist Alan Titley as The Dirty Dust. It is a novel in Alan’s words ‘in which all the characters are dead, and buried in a graveyard in Connemara who continue with venom the disputes that sustained them in their previous lives. Their only sustenance is when a new corpse arrives to tell them about the latest tittle-tattle, scandals, suppositions, rumours and even occasionally the truth about what is happening “up there”.’ Alan will be joined by award-winning writers Manchán Magan and Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, with Nessa O’Mahony as Chair.
