This discussion will commemoration and pay tribute to Cushendun resident Moira Oâ€™Neill, whose book of poems â€˜Songs of the Glens of Antrimâ€™ is alleged to have outsold Yeats in 1901 the year of its publication. Sally Phipps is Moira Oâ€™Neillsâ€™s granddaughter and the daughter of Molly Keane, arguably the last representative of a distinguished tradition of Anglo-Irish writers. Sally Phippsâ€™s biography of her mother was published to wide critical acclaim in 2018. We are very excited about her visit to the OCC, where , in conversation with Dr James Morrow, she will explore Oâ€™Neillâ€™s poetic legacy.
