William Trevor at 80

We are delighted to announce our own celebration of the work of William Trevor, in the week of his 80th birthday later in May. On Monday 19th May, there will be a talk (with discussion) on Trevor's work by Old Columban Ian Steepe (himself a former English teacher) in the College. This will be preceded by a wine reception at 7pm in the main house, and a short tour of the College's older buildings by archivist and former history teacher Ninian Falkiner. Visitors can thus get a sense of the environment which strongly influenced much of William Trevor's writing.

Places for this event are open to the public, and are free, but are limited and must be pre-booked, either through the College office at 01-490 6791 or by email through scc 'dot' english 'at' yahoo 'dot' ie (fill in correct format). More details are available here.

Today we go on a weekend Exodus break, resuming on Tuesday morning.
