New writers in Stage 2

Portráidí na Scríbhneoirí Gaeilge is a multi-annual, multi-stage project. In the first stage of the project, the book and website based on the original archive of portraits has been made available to the public. In the second stage of the project, new additional portraits are being added to the collection on an annual basis, so that the archive of living Irish-language writers can be made as complete as possible over time. A series of eight portraits/eight new writers were launched at a special occasion in the Mansion House in Dublin, and the list for 2019 is as follows:

Pól Ó Gallchóir, Chairperson of Foras na Gaeilge, launched the portraits and the panel comprising of Caoimhín Ó Peatáin, Máirín Seoighe, and Seán Ó Mainnín underlook the work this year in Stage 2 of the project.
