GORTAHORK’S LINK WITH DISTINGUISHED AUTHOR SPARKS WEEKEND OF CELEBRATIONS

Posted on by

first_imgWhen Brian O’Nolan (Myles na gCopaleen, Flann O’ Brien) finished his degree exams in University College Dublin it wasn’t to Maguluf he headed with his with his friends but to Gortahork.There was a good reason that he chose Gortahork and this year, for the first time, we are celebrating the connection that the small Gaeltacht town has with one of the most celebrated writers of the last century. This is the man who wrote An Béal Bocht, The Third Policeman and The Dalkey Archive. It would be hard to quantify the extent of the influence of Gortahork and its inhabitants on the imagination, language and comic understanding of the writer.It was in Gortahork that Micheál, his father, learnt his Irish, it was to Gortahork that they came on their family holidays and it was from Gortahork their parents employed the help needed to raise the large family and to maintain Irish as the spoken language of the household regardless of where they happened to live.On Saturday the 28th & Sunday the 29th of June 2014 the last surviving member of Brian’s family, his brother Micheál, the celebrated artist, will be present to kickstart the events.There will be a cycling trip following the route of the original cycling tour that Myles/Brian/Flann took, where stopping for ‘a pint of plain’ will be compulsory. Dr Nollaig Mac Congáil, an authority on the work of Myles na gCopaleen will be among the speakers and local performers will read from the authors work. Former RTÉ and Ros na Rún actor Diarmuid de Faoite will read from An Béal Bocht. There will be, without doubt, a Feis Ghaelach where Belfast reggae group, Bréag, will headline proceedings.Join us for this historical weekend – there will never be its like again.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Comments   Share   Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald did not return to the game after suffering a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter Sunday, but he expressed minimal concern after the game.“I could’ve played,” he said after a second of thought. “I don’t know how effective I could’ve been, but I could’ve managed my way through.”But the Cardinals, who lost to the Los Angeles Rams 34-0, had no reason to put the star veteran back in the game. Head coach Steve Wilks called it a “minor” injury and pulled him with the game out of reach. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Fitzgerald said the hamstring had “been a little tight the last 10 days or so.”On Monday with Bickley and Marotta on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station, Wilks said that Fitzgerald was still day-to-day.“Again, making sure I monitor his reps this week. I know he’s going to get in there and get the proper treatment,” Wilks said.Related LinksRapid Reactions: Cardinals get shut out by Rams in Week 2Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks on loss: ‘Everybody will be evaluated’He finished the game with three receptions for a team-high 28 yards.After he felt the hamstring “grab” a second time in the game, he decided to not risk further harm.“It wasn’t like a bad (grab), I didn’t feel it pop or anything like that, but it grabbed good enough where I know if I were to maybe kept going at it, it could have got much worse,” Fitzgerald said. “I didn’t want to add insult to injury.”Besides Fitzgerald, two other players were mentioned by Wilks as potential injury concerns.“Dennis Gardek is also questionable with his ankle and so is Olsen Pierre,” Wilks said. – / 19 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
