From the Festival Brochure:

Cork Spring Literary Festival 2010


"Dinnsheanchas in modern Irish means 'topography' but in a literary context it retains its original meaning of “lore of places”. It is no co-incidence that the author of the novel Ulysses stemmed from a literary tradition obsessed with place and the naming of place. Nor is it surprising how even in the French works of Beckett, where place is rarely named, the physical description of the landscape is so evocative of Irish topography."

—Patrick Cotter, Artistic Director of the Munster Literature Centre
