Event Details

 

Professor Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Fellow Emerita of Trinity College Dublin, will deliver the Annual Robert Welch Memorial Lecture in Literature entitled “The Evergreen Road: a hidden Ireland in the city” at 6.30 pm on 21 March 2018 in Lecture Theatre 8, Ulster University, Coleraine campus

 

Since the publication of Daniel Corkery’s The Hidden Ireland the country has been haunted by the presence of a parallel entity with its own history and its characteristic mechanism for the transmission of cultural value.  The influence of place, particularly birthplace, on this conception of a spiritual binary is important and this lecture will look at the way three writers who belonged to contiguous locations on the south side of Cork city respond to it: Robert Welch, poet, novelist and academic, Patrick Galvin, working-class poet, dramatist and autobiographer, and the Irish-language poet and dramatist Liam Ó Muirthile. Bob Welch as a bilingual writer, an expert on the translation of Irish literature and an amphibian between the creative and academic spheres, has much to tell us about the split in our cultural consciousness, and one idea which will be explored with the help of these writers’ work is the role of the city in the life and in the history of Gaelic Ireland, so often identified with the rural and the remote.

The response will be given by Dr Katherine Byrne, School of Arts and Humanities, Ulster University.
