About this event

In partnership with Dublin Port

A re-telling of tales from our island so inextricably linked to the sea that surrounds it.

Join Dublin Book Festival for an evening with author and journalist Jo Kerrigan as she discusses her new book Stories from the Sea (O’Brien Press) with fellow author, and editor of Holy Show, Brendan MacEvilly. Ireland, as an island nation, has long depended on the sea to keep it connected to the countries around it, both near and far. This latest book by Kerrigan shines a new light on traditional tales and legends, including the imramma or magical Otherworld voyage tales, exploring how deep our connection with the sea runs. Allow Jo’s words and Richard Mills’ photographs to transport you out onto the waves for an epic adventure involving storms, shipwrecks, long-distance trade journeys, pirate attacks, and more.
