‘Afterburn’ launch

December 11, 2019

By

The New York Irish Center’s Executive Director Paul Finnegan read at the Cell Theatre, New York City, last night from “Afterburn,” a new collection of stories set in his native home place, Galway City, and written by Seamus Scanlon. Non-Galwegians also read from Scanlon’s work and not just in English. The full house enjoyed Irish, Italian and Portuguese translations, as well as an entertaining short film made in Galway, for the launch of the new book.  More pictures from the event will appear in next week’s Irish Echo.
