The Irish Scottish Cultural & Literary Festival

8–14 April 2018

Merchant City, Glasgow

The Emigrant Support Fund, of the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin, has recently awarded Irish Pages a large grant to organize an annual “Irish Scottish Cultural and Literary Festival” in the Merchant City area of Glasgow. It will take place 8-14 April 2018. The particular aim is to foster and expand the rather weak literary links across the North Channel, particularly between Northern Ireland and Scotland — separated, as it were, by the United Kingdom and a devolved focus on London. Additional grants have been received from Colmcille, a part of Foras na Gaeilge, and The University of Strathclyde. Further details about the journal, The Irish Pages Press, and (in early March) the Festival programme itself will be found here.
