Gregor's final public event
Gregor will be guest poet at the Night of the Scribes this evening in Aras Mhic Reachtain as part of McCracken Summer School. He will read some of his own poems in Slovene as well as one in Irish! Gearóid Mac Lochlainn, a Belfast poet will read the Irish version.
Gearóid has published five books which have won numerous awards at home and internationally for writing in Irish and English. As well as being writer-in-residence at both Queens University and the University of Ulster in the past, Gearóid has produced three books for children in Irish and regularly gives workshops, readings and interviews about Irish language arts in Northern Ireland. His work has been translated into Slovene as part of an Anthology of Irish Poems. Gregor, in return will read the slovene version of his poems.
What an exchange of minority and small languages!
