Tonight in the Big Schoolroom at 8pm, as part of the College's annual Arts Week, there will be an event to remember the great Old Columban novelist, William Trevor. The novelist Joseph O'Connor will read one of Trevor's short stories and talk about him, and the Head of the English Department, Julian Girdham, will give an account of Trevor's writings about schools and the College in particular. The event is open to the public, and there is no charge for entry.
If you haven't been to the College before, here are directions.
Here is Mira Stout's great interview with Trevor in the Paris Review in 1989.
Below, a fascinating interview with William Trevor by Mike Murphy on RTE in 2000.
