Irish is one of the oldest written languages in Europe, with a literary tradition that stretches back to the beginning of the middle ages. This day of talks from leading experts will provide an introduction to Irish-language literature from its beginnings to the present, covering a wide variety of themes and forms, from poetry to prose, from the tales of the legendary hero Fionn mac Cumhail to the twentieth-century experimental modernism of Flann O’Brien.

Note: talks will be in English or in a mix of both English and Irish.

Lunch will be provided.
