It is a new, inclusive and accessible festival for adults and children focused on the literary arts – fiction, poetry and non-fiction in English and Irish – and delivered through readings, workshops and performance.

Agallamh Sa Cheo Winner of this year’s Michael Hartnett Poetry Award

Posted by Dathaí books@dinglebookshop.com on

Congratulations to Ceaití Ní Bheildiúin, on winning this year's Michael Hartnett Poetry Award.

“I am nothing less than stunned,” Ms Ní Bheildiúin said in response to her success in winning this year’s award which was for a second or later collection of poems in Irish.

A long-time admirer of Michael Hartnett’s own poetry she continued: “I always get a great hit out of reading Michael Hartnett’s poetry. I became aware of him, his poems and his life story shortly after I started to compose pieces of Irish language verse. I felt an immediate affinity to him that he had toiled in the same mistiness of Gaeilge as a second language as I was doing. I find his poetry in both Irish and English powerful.”

In this homage to the mountain, Ní Bheildiúin demonstrates her own deep appreciation of Mount Brandon. Nature poetry and a sense of place are central to the Gaelic tradition and Agallamh sa Cheo should be considered among the most significant works of this era that contemplates our relationship with the natural world.”

Piranesi. Winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2021

Posted by Dathaí books@dinglebookshop.com on

The spectacular new novel from the bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell 'one of our greatest living authors' New York Magazine .

Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone.
