Under the patronage of Irish Ambassador to Germany, Michael Collins, and supported by Culture Ireland, Kulturbehörde Hamburg (Arts Council) and Hamburg company ESN, the festival brings contemporary Irish literature to Hamburg…where Irish poet and Hamburg resident, Terry McDonagh’s ambition to establish a festival of Irish literature becomes a reality.

Irish and German authors will be provided with the opportunity to come together and share work and experiences.

For the duration of the festival, artworks by the artist John Kavanagh and artworks by intellectually disabled artists (from Mayfield Arts Centre in Cork) will be displayed and available in monsun.theater foyer.
