Yes, perhaps it was staying up all night to see the total eclipse of the ‘super moon’ on the 27th or maybe I’d been staring into the fire too long but… I’m afraid that I gave you the wrong information last time about my forthcoming appearance on the TV programme “Imeall“. Well, even Homer nods, as they say or – Teipeann focal ar an sagairt paróiste.
The good news is that it’ll be on this Thursday evening (1st of October) at 8pm. There’s a repeat on Sunday night at 11.30pm and of course, it can be seen for the next while on the TG4 player at
Anyway, in the programme this week, Tristan Rosenstock meets Australian artist Patricia Piccinini to talk about her exhibition “Relativity” and her air sculpture The Sky Whale at the Galway International Arts Festival; Kate Finnegan meets me (!) to discuss my exhibition “Diaspora” at the Olivier Cornet Gallery; There’s also a conversation with poet Cathal Ó Searcaigh in the shadow of Mount Errigal in Donegal and a discussion about his two new collections of poetry ‘An Fear Glas’ and ‘An Bhé Glas’; and finally, singer/songwriter Enda Reilly heads to Abner Browns Barbershop for a trim and a song.
Shur wouldn’t you be mad to miss it! PS: here’s a photo that I took of the moon that night. a special night, it won’t happen again until 2033.
