There is a huge international demand for a webinar ón the short stories of Máirtín Ó Cadhain which will be hosted in the Galway Gaeltacht this Friday, 18th September 2020 between 1000-1600. We are delighted to welcome attendees from all over the world to the seminar this Friday.
Seven critics from four different countries will speak at the event which will re-examine the short-form fiction of Máirtín Ó Cadhain (1906-1970), who was originally from An Cnocán Glas, An Spidéal.
The webinar is being organised by publisher Cló Iar-Chonnacht in partnership with NUI Galway in commemoration of Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s death 50 years ago. The event will be conducted entirely on-line, with virtual attendance only, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.
100 attendees have already pre-registered for the webinar from far and wide with heavy attendance from Europe, USA and Canada expected. Due to the demand the seminar will also be streamed live on YouTube: https://tinyurl.com/CloIarChonnachtYouTube
