In this event, journalist Pat Carty will explore memoir, nature writing and personal accounts of the self with three writers who gave us fascinating insights into very different worlds with their latest books.
Cacophony of Bone by Kerri ní Dochartaigh interrogates the cycle of a year, the journey from one place to another, from one winter to the next, the living and the breathing of it all.
In Dirty Linen, Martin Doyle returns to his home parish of Tullylish to tell the stories of the people whose lives were lost within its locality, to examine the toll that the conflict took, and the grief and sense of loss that continues to linger there. It is an exquisite piece of memoir and honouring.
With The Grass Ceiling, writer Eimear Ryan gives us a sharply observed exploration of gender and sport and the questions that relationship throws up about identity, status, competition and self-expression.
