Agnès Pataux
L'Irlande au rivage de l'Europe

The launch of this magnificent book of photographs by Agnes Pataux, with a foreword by Colm Toibin marks a love of Ireland's savage terrain by this French photographer from the Pyrennees. Agnes Pataux's view of Ireland - Connemara, Mayo, Antrim - is informed by an understanding of the natural forces and the Irish people, that have combined to give Ireland a ruggedness, reflected also in its music and literature.

The celebrate this launch Charlie Piggot, Tom Nealon and Pat O'Connor, musicians whose music reflects the terrain of the ancient Clare from which they come, will play in the Centre Culturel Irlandais.
