The collection of poetry, Tadhall by Pauline Nic Chonaonaigh, published by Cló Iar-Chonnacht, which features photographs by Simon Boyle, will be launched at a special evening of poetry and music in Seanscoil Sailearna on Friday, 12 April at 8:00 p.m. The event is being organised by Cló Iar-Chonnacht in association with the Cúirt festival. Entry is free of charge and all are welcome to attend.
Local author and academic, Máire Ní Neachtain, will be the host on the evening and poems from the collection will be read aloud by Deirdre Nic Chonaonaigh, Síle Nic Chonaonaigh and Maidhc P. Ó Conaola, accompanied by the distinctive music of Johnny Óg Connolly.
In Tadhall, her first collection, Pauline Nic Chonaonaigh finds inspiration in the small miracles she sees in the world around her: swallows on their journey, the light of the moon piercing clouds or the contrast between the palpable intensity of stillness and the ripping ferocity of a storm.
Contemporary Irish-language fiction is engaging with an exciting range of styles and themes, including detective and science fiction genres. Join authors Alan Titley and Dave Duggan as they read from their latest novels, (Lámh, Lámh Eile and Makaronik) and discuss new writing in the Irish language with author and publisher, Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin, who is currently working on his first novel, Bean an Oileáin, to be published in 2020. This event is primarily through Irish but questions in English are welcome during the Q&A.
