About this event

Black Mountain and Other Stories by Gerry Adams

Black Mountain and Other Stories is Gerry Adams 17th published book. He has also published a book of poetry and seven Léargas books in which he writes about well known republican leaders he has known, including Máire Drumm, John Joe McGirl and Bobby Storey and others.

His first book - Falls Memories was published in 1982 by Brandon Press. Ten years later his first book of short stories - The Street and Other Stories was published.

Black Mountain is also book of short stories. There are eleven new stories and five which were previously published. The Foreword is by well known author Timothy O'Grady who depending on Covid regulations hopes to be at the book launch.

Black Mountain and Other Stories is being published by Brandon books, an Imprint of O’Brien Press on 2 August and launched publicly at Féile an Phobail on Thursday 5th August.

The publisher, O’Brien Press, say:

“In this collection, one of Ireland’s best-known political figures brings us stories of love, of politics, of war and of friendship. These are portraits of Ireland, and especially Belfast, old and new, in times of struggle and in times of peace, showing how our past is always part of our present. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, always moving, these are stories of ordinary people captured with wit, with heart and with understanding.”

Gerry Adams says:

“I’m delighted to publish Black Mountain and Other Stories. One of the stories is called Black Mountain - and I’m very happy with the notion of Sliabh Dubh as the over arching witness to many of the events I’ve written about in this new tome.

I’m grateful also to Féile an Phobail and Cumann na Méirleach Poblachtach Éireannach - the Felons Club – for hosting the book launch.”

Because of Covid Regulations the launch of Black Mountain and Other Stories will be a ticket only event in the Felon’s Club on the Falls Road at 1pm on 5th August. It will also be live streamed by Féile an Phobail. After the book launch Gerry Adams will sign books.

Copies of Black Mountain will be on sale in The Felons or at An Fhuiseog, £11.99.
