Allihies inspires for a second year!

Allihies Inspires (July 5 – 7) is a literary festival set up by two of our MA students last year – Dee Collins, left, and Claire Zwaartman, winner of the 2018 Francis McManus Award. This year they are joined by Niamh Twomey, and Marie Haugh from the current MA class.

The festival was inaugurated last year – in association with the MA’s Business of Writing module which includes a work placement in the arts/ literary sphere.  This year’s programme features a host of interesting writers, including UCC’s Adjunct Professor, playwright and novelist Conal Creedon.
