Féile Dánnerstag
Thanks to funding by Foras na Gaeilge we will be able to continue the 2021-2022 Dánnerstag project in a slightly different format as Féile Dánnerstag/ Dánnerstag Festival in the autumn of 2022. This time, we will be translating the other way around, from Irish to German, with a four-part Irish-German Poetry Festival: Gabriel Rosenstock (on 22 September, with Hans-Christian Oeser), Alan Titley, Julie Goo and Micheál Ó hAodha will take part in September, October, November and December 2022. Project leaders are Sorcha de Brún and Gisela Holfter, UL.
