PODCAST: Dr Diane Urquhart and Dr Deaglán Ó Donghaile on their great lost Irish books in Liverpool Central Library

October 11, 2015

A couple of good friends, Dr Diane Urquhart of the Institute of Irish Studies at the University of Liverpool, and Dr Deaglán Ó Donghaile of Liverpool John Moores University, are giving talks this week on their great lost Irish books in Liverpool Central Library.

The event, handily titled ‘Lost Irish Books at Liverpool Central Library’, is on Friday, (October 16th) in the recently redeveloped Victorian Central Library, and is part of the Marginal Irish Modernisms strand at this year’s Festival, curated by Dr Gerry Smyth of LJMU.

Deaglán will be discussing The Secret History of the Fenian Conspiracy (1877) by John Rutherford, and Diane will address Autobiography of a Liverpool Slummy (1934) by Pat O’Mara. Professor Shaun Richards completes the line-up of top academics and is discussing Patriots: A Play in Three Acts (1912) by Lennox Robinson.

Diane and Deaglán gave me a few minutes to discuss their chosen books and why these texts remain relevant for the modern world.

Further details of the full programme at the Liverpool Irish Festival are available here.
