New York 18 Feb 2016






Getting geared up for a visit to New York next week… I’ll be reading at CUNY Grad Centre (365 5th Avenue) on Thursday 18th February at 7pm. Hilary Mhic Suibhne from NYU will be introducing me and I’ll be reading some poems from Tost agus Allagar with translations. This bilingual event is kindly hosted by Tomás Ó hÍde and Lehman College, where I taught Gaelic as a Fulbright FLTA in 2007/08.

I’ll also be participating in the conference ‘Litríocht na Gaeilge agus Stair na hÉireann’ which will be held in Lehman College on 19 & 20 February. The papers on Friday will be delivered in English while those on Saturday will be as Gaeilge. You can check out the programme here. I’m particularly looking forward to the Fundraiser Dinner on Friday night where Eileen Houlihan Zurell and Séamus Blake will be honoured for their contribution to Irish life in New York. More information and tickets available here.

Finally, here is a pic of the New York launch of Péacadh fadó fadó…



PS: Date for Galway launch – 25th February… More details to follow…
