Admission: £8 | BOOK HERE

Darach Ó Séaghdha is an Irish writer, podcaster and Irish language activist. He is the author of Motherfoclóir: Dispatches from a not so dead language, which won Ireland AM Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year in the 2017 Irish Book Awards. He runs the popular Irish-language-trivia Twitter account The Irish For.

'Motherfocloir' [focloir means 'dictionary' and is pronounced like a rather more vulgar English epithet] is a book based on the popular Twitter account @theirishfor. 'Motherfocloir' takes an irreverent, pun-friendly and contemporary approach to the Irish language. The author includes stories about his own relationship with Irish, and how it fits in with the most important events in his life. An event for all lovers of the quirks of language.
