‘Oilithreach pinn’ launch this Friday 17 October 2017
Liam Ó Muirthile will launch his new book Oilithreach pinn this coming Friday the 20th of October at 6.00pm. The launch takes places as part of the programme for Féile IMRAM, Dublin’s Irish-language literature festival, and will be held in the Poetry Ireland building on Parnell Square (see map below).
Liam Ó Muirthile walked the Camino Française, a total of 770 km, across the Pyrenees from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela in autumn 2015. He journeyed alone, carried a backpack and stayed in the pilgrim hostels along the route. Moira Sweeney’s inspired photographs illuminate the pilgrim path.
The author also tranlsated a number of works by Rosalía de Castro on his journey, and Carmen Rodríguez Alonso will be with us on the night to recite some of these in the Galician language.
