Book Launch: The Irish Outlander by Scott De Buitléir
Wednesday 21 March 2018
6.30pm – 8.30pm | All welcome
All are welcome to the launch of The Irish Outlander: Discovering the Irish Meaning of Home by Scott De Buitléir.
The Irish are renowned for travelling the world, but where is home while they're abroad? In mixing his own story with those of other emigrants, Scott De Buitléir finds out what 'home' means to a people for whom emigration is part of the national psyche. From crisp sandwiches to the smell of the Atlantic Ocean, The Irish Outlander is a literary love song to Ireland from afar, and a reminder to those abroad that they've not been forgotten.
