Beidh ócáid ar siúl i Leabharlann na Cathrach i gCorcaigh ag 7 tráthnóna inniu in ómós do Liam Ó Muirthile. Is mar chuid den Cork Work Book Fest a bheidh mé féin, Louis de Paor agus Mícheál Ó hUanacháin ag caint faoi shaothar Uí Mhuirthile a d’imigh ar shlí na fírinne bliain ó shin, nach mór. Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam.

Tá go leor imeachtaí eile ar chlár na féile: seoladh leabhair Thomas McCarthy oíche Dhéardaoin, agus beidh file ón gCatalóin, Sílvia Aymerich-Lemos, ag caint Dé Sathairn, mar shampla.

New Anthology: Poètes de Munster 1960-2015

poesie

I was delighted to have been included in a new anothology of poets from Munster that was recently published by Éditions Illador, edited by Clíona Ní Ríordáin and Paul Bensimon. It is a beautifully designed book with translations from English and Irish to French. Félicitations!

Here is an article in The Irish Examiner about the book:

Lunch and Launch
Some of the poets gathered at the gorgeous Farmgate restaurant for lunch before the launch at Cork City Library.

I’m particularly grateful to Clíona for including my work in another anothology she edited recently, Femmes d’Irlande en Poésie, 1973-2013 (Éditions Caractères, 2013).
