PODCAST: Linda Ervine on learning Irish as a Northern Protestant and her film What the Focal!
I recorded this podcast with the brilliant Linda Ervine prior to a screening of her film What the Focal! at the 2016 Liverpool Irish Festival.
With heavy autobiographical overtones, What the Focal! follows the life of Maggie, a Northern Irish Protestant who decides to learn Irish against the wishes of her husband and community.
She appears at St Michael’s Irish Centre, Boundary Lane, Liverpool on Wednesday, October 20 at 8pm. Full details here.
