Claire Kilroy gave a reading on March 31 at the Alumni Center. Kilroy is one of Ireland’s most prominent contemporary writers. She is the author of four novels, was awarded the 2004 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, and has been short-listed for the Kerry Group Novel of the Year Award three times. Kilroy was the Gerson Irish Reader six years ago, and we are delighted to see her return!
Upcoming Irish Studies speakers include Thomas Long, Colm McGinley, Nels Pearson, and a play by Eamon Grennan. For more information, visit the Irish studies calendar for spring 2015.
