The West Cork Literary Festival


Monday 4 July 2011

6:30 p.m., Poetry Readings

at The Mariner, Free Admission

(Over the Brick Oven Restaurant)

Bantry, west County Cork, Ireland

Dairena Ní Chinnéide and

Peadar Ó hUallaigh

with Rónán Ó Snodaigh

Dairena Ní Chinnéide is an incantatory poet.  Her work is deeply
rooted in the language, folklore and traditions of her native Corca
Dhuibhne, but also pulses with cutting-edge contemporary rhythms.  Her
collections include "Máthair an Fhiaigh/The Raven's Mother" and
"Bleachtaire na Seirce."  Tonight she will be accompanied by Kíla's
lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, Rónán Ó Snodaigh.

Peadar Ó hUallaigh's "Tír Tairngre," winner of the 2010 Rupert and
Eithne Strong Award, is a vision-poet; and he is a unafraid to take a
voyage to the discrete lands of Utopia.  An accomplished traditional
musician, Peadar will also play on the flute tonight.

This bi-lingual reading is curated by Liam Carson, director of the
IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.

And then on ...
