Digital Platform for Contemporary Irish Writing

An article in the Irish Times on Saturday highlights an excellent new website and resource for students, the Digital Platform for Contemporary Irish Writing from the School of English at UCD. Margaret Kelleher, Chair of Anglo-Irish literature and Drama at UCD, explains: 

"As our team members write on our blog, this is a “platform” and not simply a website or a resource, because we intend it to act as a springboard for interested parties – writers, publishers, academics and readers – to discuss how the richness and diversity of contemporary Irish writing can best be made known at home and abroad"

So worth checking out are the pages on two of the texts we are studying for the Leaving Certificate comparative module:

and much more.
