Music and Poems of the Earls

Poet Liam Ó Muirthile, singers Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin and Iarla Ó Lionaird, musician Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh

A reading and musical performance of the great outburst of poetry written by the Gaelic Court Poets when their dynastic leaders, O'Neill and O'Donnell set out by ship from Donegal for Continental Europe in 1607 - now known as The Flight of the Earls. The event both provoked and inspired the poets into action.
