Borris Festival of Writing and Ideas 2021

Excitement is growing at the prospect of taking part in a real Festival, an actual live event this weekend in the beautiful setting of Borris House, in the village of Borris in County Carlow.

I will be talking history and how it informs and shapes us in the Roundhouse Marquee on Saturday 21st August at I.45 pm with fellow history lover and writer Turtle Bunbury.

There is a fantastic line up events over the three days of the weekend Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd August, with President Michael  D Higgins, Marian Keyes, Professor Luke O’Neill, film director Jim Sheridan, Sebastian, Barry, Liz Nugent  and so many others taking part.

There will be live music, tasty food, great conversation and plenty of debate, all the things we have missed over the past year and half. Well done to Vivienne Guinness and Hugo Jellet and their team for putting together such a brilliant programme…exactly what we all need!
