Dermot Bolger launches The Edna O’ Brien Lecture Series in Scariff Public Library
Such was the success of Edna O’Brien’s interview with Declan Kiberd in Scariff Public Library in 2010, the Scariff Harbour Festival Committee have decided to name this annual library event in her honour with well known novelist, playwright and poet Dermot Bolger launching the series. Dermot spoke about his life and works and read several poems from his many volumes of poetry to an enthusiastic audience on Saturday 30th July 2011 as part of the Scariff Harbour Festival. A workshop for young people to learn the art of storytelling through comic strips also took place in the library as part of the festival.
