Franco Irish Literary Festival 2019 @ Castle Hall, Bedford Tower
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Now a significant date in Dublin’s annual literary calendar, the Franco-Irish Literary Festival is continuing the tradition that led to Dublin’s nomination as a UNESCO City of Literature.
The event will take place in the Alliance Française and in the prestigious Dublin Castle/Castle Hall in April 2019. The festival’s aim is to widen and enhance the long-standing friendship that exists between Ireland, France, and other French-speaking countries. It welcomes writers in both the English and Irish languages, together with writers from the wider French-speaking world. In doing so it provides an opportunity to showcase a wide selection of Irish and French-speaking writers for the Irish public. This event also encourages and stimulates Irish and Francophone literature around the world in all its forms, including poetry, plays, novels, short stories, essays, and diaries, and creates opportunities to develop links between writers and publishers from both countries. This is how new partnerships have been created in the past.
