About this event

Harry Crosbie is best known as the developer who transformed Dublin and its music scene during the 1990s with the Point and Bord Gáis theatres, Vicar Street and the docklands. In his collection of short stories, Undernose Farm, which recreate the city life of his youth during the early 1960s, through tales of the Dublin and Dubliners who peopled his hard-scrabble world, he discovers a voice that will leave an equal mark on cultural memory.

John O'Donnell's work has been published and broadcast widely. He has published four poetry collections, the latest being Sunlight: New & Selected Poems (Dedalus Press, 2018). Prizes include the Irish National Poetry Prize, the Ireland Funds Prize and the Hennessy Award for Poetry. Fiction publications include Counterparts, Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction, Sunday Independent, The Stinging Fly, and RTE’s The Book On One. Awards include the Hennessy Award for Emerging Fiction and the Cuirt Festival New Writing Fiction Prize. His collection of short stories Almost the Same Blue (Doire Press) was nominated in the Irish Times as one of the Best Fiction Debuts of 2020, and one of the Books of the Year in the Sunday Independent. His play Rainbow Baby was recently broadcast on RTE Radio’s Drama On One. Americans Anonymous, a collaboration of photographs and poems with photographer Barry Delaney is forthcoming from Hi-Tone Books.

Clíona Ní Ríordáin (moderator) is a critic, translator and Professor of English at the Sorbonne Nouvelle where she teaches translation and Irish literature. Her most recent book is English Language Poets in University College Cork 1970-1980 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020). She has also edited several anthologies of Irish poetry, including Jeune Poésie d’Irlande: les poètes du Munster (Illador, 2015) and a volume of Gerry Murphy's poems, Plus loin encore, with Circe, both co-edited and co-translated with Paul Bensimon. She chairs the Fondation irlandaise’s Translation Prize and sits on the Strategic Committee of the Centre Culturel Irlandais.
