Announcing the Recipients of our Irish Language Writer-in-their-Residence scheme


We are delighted to announce the recipients of our Irish Language Writer-in-their-Residence scheme! Réaltán Ní Leannáin and Sadhbh Devlin will both be receiving financial support to develop an existing work in progress. Over the next few weeks, these two writers will also be documenting their experiences of creating work under the current restrictions. 

The aim of this opportunity is to support writers in exploring the challenges of creating during this period, and to share their process with a wider audience. You can follow Réaltán and Sadhbh through the #WritersInTheirResidence hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.
