Fourth Annual Féile na bhFlaitheartach to take place on Inis Mór this weekend

As an admirer of Liam O'Flaherty's writings and as a committee member of the Liam and Tom O'Flaherty Society, I am delighted to announce that the fourth Féile na bhFlaitheartach takes place on Inis Mór this weekend. See below for the full programme and please consider joining us for another memorable weekend of readings, music, drama, good chat, craic and debate. Note that the ferry departs at 10:30am each morning. 

I've been sharing information and articles about the Féile over the past few weeks on other social media and hope to write a future blog post about O'Flaherty's writings. If you haven't already done so, this is the year to read his novel, Insurrection, which was first published in 1950. This gripping work of fiction focuses on Connemara man, Bartly Madden, who returns from England to Dublin at the outset of Easter Week 1916 and gradually finds himself caught up in the Rising.
