A Ghost in the Throat (Tramp Press, 2020)
Cork. 1773. An Irish noblewoman, on discovering her husband’s murdered corpse, drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary poem that reaches across the centuries to another woman. In modern Cork, Doireann Ní Ghríofa finds herself rereading this poem aloud again and again, and in doing so, she feels the living presence of this poet return. Driven by a growing curiosity, she sets out to find the rest of the story.
The reading will be broadcast from The Everyman stage.
Presented by Cork Midsummer Festival & Doireann Ní Ghríofa.
