    Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill in Prague and Vienna – EFACIS Irish Itinerary 2017

    Prague and Vienna had the honour to host celebrated poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill in September. The Prague reading was part of an Evening of Irish Literature and Music at the magnificent Strahov Monastery (15 September), featuring also writer, translator and scholar Alan Titley. The work of Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and Alan Titley was presented also in Czech translations by Daniela Theinová, Radvan Markus and Martin Světlík. The reading was accompanied by the music of Kateřina García and Síle Denvir, who performed Irish, Czech and Catalan songs.

    This public event was hosted by the Centre for Irish Studies at Charles University as part of the international conference “Ar an Imeall i Lár an Domhain? An tairseachúlacht i litríocht agus i gcultúr na Gaeilge agus na hEorpa”, and was supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Ireland and Culture Ireland via the EFACIS Irish Itinerary. It was covered in articles in the Irish Times (http://tuairisc.ie/whats-going-on-im-hearing-a-lot-of-irish-on-the-plane-comhdhail-stairiuil-ghaeilge-i-bprag/).

    Following the Prague performance, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill continued on her journey to Vienna, where she gave a well-attended reading at Vienna University (18 September).
