Public lecture on Pádraic Ó Conaire

The Galway City Museum will mark the 130th anniversary of the birth of Irish writer and journalist Pádraic Ó Conaire with a public lecture on his work this Saturday.

Dr Pádraigín Riggs of University College Cork, talks about the themes of exile and loss in Ó Conaire’s work. Although he is best known for his comic story M’Asal Beag Dubh, most of his stories are dark and pessimistic.

The talk, which will be delivered bilingually, will start at 2.30pm, is free of charge and is suitable for anyone from 15 years and over.
