Padraic Colum Gathering 2022

Cruinnú Padraic Colum 2022 

Join us for the Padraic Colum Gathering on 13-14 May, when we celebrate the work of one of Longford's great writers.
This year's Gathering promises to be very enjoyable and informative, and the contributors include acclaimed local author, John Connell; writer and broadcaster Aidan O'Hara; academics Prof. Bairbre Ní Fhloinn and Méabh Ní Choileáin; and local historian Seán Ó Súilleabháin.
Please note that pre-booking of the bus tour on Saturday afternoon, departing Granard, is essential and the cost is €5 per person.
We hope to stream the opening event and Saturday's talks via Facebook Live on the Padraic Colum Gathering Facebook page.
