The Franco-Irish Literary Festival aim is to widen and enhance the long-standing friendship that exists between Ireland, France and other French-speaking countries. In 2013 the festival celebrates European cultural connections in Ireland and encourages the discovery of Irish, French and other European literature.
Exceptionally this year, due to the Irish Presidency of the EU, the festival opens its doors to writers from several countries in Europe. Irish and French writers will be joined by writers from several other European countries, such as Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany, and Romania.
