It’s a pleasure to inform you that AEDEI member Keith Payne has just published his translation of Martín Veiga’s Diary of Crosses Green, about a Galician exile’s experience of Cork. They will be launching this book all accross Galicia in the coming weeks and we will provide details very soon.
More information about the book can be found here:
As Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin says of the book:
“Anchored in a riverside patch of historic Cork, this book embraces a world of water, gushing or still, reflecting, swallowing light, pulsing in the Atlantic, slouching downhill in the crumbling quarters of the city. Here are the pressures of exile that separate and connect Ireland and Galicia, and here are the birds, animals, poets that ambush his exiled path. It is a memorable vision.”
