Riverrun of Language

Experience the sound of Irish literature up close in this immersive installation.

What does Irish writing sound like? ‘From swerve of shore to bend of bay’, every corner of Ireland has its own accent and voice. Whether in Irish or English, our writers have always played with words and painted vivid images that challenge us to think, feel and imagine.

From the mythologies of our deepest past to the stories of today, the Irish have known love and loss, conflict and resolution and journeys of all kind. Our writing says so much about us, about what we feel, what we believe, what we have lived through, and how rooted we are in a strong sense of place – our place, Ireland.
