I am placing herein a link to the Index page of the Irish Writer’s Centre in Parnell Square who have been running a series of Benefit evenings to increase core funding as a result of cutting by The Irish Arts Council, (along with fund cutting to the Western Writer’s Centre). The Cuts occurred just after the Minister Martin Cullen appointed a New Irish Art’s Council Board (Linked at base of this piece/Politics.ie).
The Benefits have been running Oct > Dec 2009 and are chaired by Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and John F Deane, I hope to get out to one or two of them also. The Index page of the IWC is here:
