Darach Ó Séaghdha's bestselling Motherfoclóir' [focloir means 'dictionary' and is pronounced like a rather more vulgar English epithet] is a book based on the wry and often hilarious Twitter account @theirishfor that makes clever observations about the language and it's many nuances.

The son of a linguist Darach has been fascinated by language since he was a child; 'Motherfoclóir' takes an irreverent, pun-friendly and contemporary approach to the Irish language. If you're interested in language or learning Irish, Darach will enthrall you with the ways connections are made, and has a wealth of anecdotes and observations about Irish and Ireland itself, as well as language in general. The author includes stories about his own relationship with Irish, and how it fits in with the most important events in his life.

This is an event for all lovers of the quirks of Irish and language.
