Cúirt‘s kicked off, and I’m not there – yet. Anybody catch Joseph O’Neill on Monday? Or Colm Toibin and D.R. MacDonald? Any upcoming highlights to, er, highlight? Anyone have an opinion on this year’s programme (too many readings? not enough?), and whether discussions (Joseph O’Connor with Philip King, Aidan Higgins with Neil Donnelly) work as a format, or whether the element of chemistry experiment is too risky to replace a reading, or indeed, whether questions should EVER be taken from the audience?
