A literature of place

27 November 2020

In today's episode of Spreading the Words we explore the meaning of the word Dinnsheanchas.

Real space without and imaginative space within: how the poetry of Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, rooted in the landscape, echoes the interests of medieval Ireland.  

Episode 16: Dinnsheanchas. Listen to the podcast here.

Spreading the Words is a new series by MoLi on the histories of Irish words from literature and everyday life. The episodes are written by Sharon Arbuthnot and Máire Ní Mhaonaigh, authors of A History of Ireland in 100 Words, and produced in association with the book and the electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language. Read by Meidhbhín Ní Úrdail.
