March is here, so that means Reading Ireland Month is here!

Join myself and Niall at The Fluff is Raging as we celebrate all that is good about Irish books and culture.

It won’t be any fun without you, so grab our pin and add the link to your blog posts at the linky below. If you need any inspiration, you can check out my list of 100 Irish novels, or watch our Begorrathon trailer and see if anything sparks your interest.

Remember everyone who posts during Reading Ireland Month will be entered into a draw to win a year’s subscription to Ireland’s leading literary magazine, The Stinging Fly.

Join in the conversation on Facebook or on Twitter with our hashtags #readireland16 and #begorrathon16

Don’t forget to check in throughout the month as there will be great interview and giveaways happening every week.

Links Final

Let the craic begin!

  1. I was so impressed with your video I had to have a go myself. Much more fun than doing the ironing which was meant to be my task tonight 🙂
    i have three books lined up ready for the month – just haven’t decided which comes first

  2. Hi. I’m probably late in singing up and that’s fine. I normally always read a Irish themed book for March already… 1) for St Patrick’s Day, 2) for my own Irish Heritage (mom’s side is very Irish).

    So I posted that ping for March Artist Spotlight above because there’s a book by an Irish author I found interesting.

    Maria Edgeworth’s Castle Rackrent. Looks I’ll be reading this after all for this month because it looks short enough for my busy schedule lately.

  3. Cathy, I need your help. 🙂 I tried reading ‘A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing’, but I didn’t cope with it quite well. Looks like I will have to go back to it. Maybe, a few years later. But, I want to read at least one book for ‘Ireland Month’. Could you please recommend an Irish novella for me, which I can buy, and start reading right away? 🙂 Many thanks!
