Finnish Night in Galway City Library

In September, as part of the EC's ‘Communicating Europe Initiative’ Galway City Library hosted a Finnish literature and music evening. Our project was entitled 'Being Irish, Being European, Being Human' and involved placing works in translation by native writers of EU countries in selected libraries to promote public awareness of the literature and culture of countries within the EU.
As well as featuring poets and poetry from Finland, the Nordic group, Cafe Minor performed some fantastic Finnish folk music.
