Testimonials

“I thought I would enjoy Scandanavia and I did; enjoyed, too, the spirit of the perenigration. It is sad to think that Irene and Britta are retiring from Irish studies, though there seems to be no stopping those chicks, I feel they will go and go.

So, lots of hard work and good people, and snow - some sense of connection, too - these, to quote Julie Andrews, are a few of my favorite things.”

Anne EnrightIrish Itinerary 2013

"I really liked it! I already had a soft spot for James Joyce's poetry and folk music separately, and I thought the combination very appealing. I am looking forward to hearing the entire CD." (on Gerry Smyth's performance)

Annelies (student)Irish Itinerary 2013

“Claire's reading went extremely well. We enjoyed it immensely and Claire  was a wonderful guest and brilliant reader. We had advertised the event at university and we forwarded the info to the university's press office. We had also availed of the German-Irish  Society Saarland's mailing list to spread the word. The Q&A-Session alone lasted for about 80 mins: the audience seemed to  enjoy it greatly and especially our students asked many questions. We were all very much taken by Claire Kilroy who was such an interesting and thought-provoking speaker, and who spoke very openly and in a very  personal way about The Devil I Know, the creative process and about  the socio-historical context of the novel.” 

Eva Michely, University of Saarbr├╝ckenIrish Itinerary 2015

"The Irish Itinerary was a great success here. Rita Duffy made a fascinating presentation illuminating Irish history, politics, social conditions apart from showing examples of her own art – highly appreciated. Anne Enright's lecture was so rich and her reading magic – I can't remember her being so good ever before. And Sinéad and Darina were absolutely wonderful! ...it was brilliant, funny, poignant, subversive. They brought James joyce back to life. Now I want to look at Joyce again...We want to have them back."

Professor Brita Olinder, GothenburgIrish Itinerary 2013

During our BA studies, this is the first semester that we got a deeper insight into Irish Culture and Literature and a reading event like this was just the perfect way to raise the students’ interest not only in Mr Patterson’s novels, but also in Irish literature in general. Mr Patterson’s great sense of humour and the way he talked about his novels, the city of Belfast and the process of writing made us rush to the library right after the event and borrow his books immediately. It was also amazing that he himself read out some parts of the novel, Fat Lad, which is required reading for our Introduction to Irish Studies lecture course. We do not often have the chance to meet the authors of the reading materials for our courses, and it was not just entertaining and enjoyable but also quite useful; an event like this brings the students closer to the topics discussed in class. My favourite parts of the event were when Mr Patterson described how he chose the titles of his novels and when he talked about his experiences about Hungary and Hungarian people. I enjoyed listening to him, it was so good to hear him talk about Belfast; it was clear that he loves the city where he lives and works.
