[Dublin] From River To Sea: Encounters in Palestine & Israel – An evening with Dervla Murphy
UNFORTUNATELY, Due to a serious illness we will have to CANCEL this event (and hopefully reschedule at a later date). Dervla Murphy is very sorry, and asked use to convey her sincere apologies to everyone who had planned on coming.
We at the IPSC wish Dervla a very speedy recovery! And course we will let you know if and when this event is rescheduled.
The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, in association with PalFest Ireland and the Trade Union Friends of Palestine proudly invite you to an evening in the company of the unique Dervla Murphy on Wednesday 21st October, 7pm in Liberty Hall.
It is 50 years since Ireland’s intrepid adventuress and travel writer, Dervla Murphy, published her first book Full Tilt, in which she recounts her epic journey from Ireland to India by way of Persia, Afghanistan Pakistan and through the Himalayas – all on a bicycle.
Much has changed since that time. Fifty years and many journeys have seen Dervla undergo a process of politicisation in direct response to the experience of travels in places such as the US, Cuba and the north of Ireland. Dervla will be marking the publication in paperback of her two most recent books – both about the Palestine-Israel region – by giving a talk entitled ‘Between River and Sea: Encounters in Palestine & Israel’.
Don’t miss this rare chance to spend an evening in the company of the wonderful Dervla Murphy!
“[A] wake-up call to the world … The quality of Murphy’s sympathy and the sharpness of her mind offer a sort of blueprint for a new way of thinking and feeling about the [Palestinians’] plight” – Colm Tóibín, Irish Times
Admission is Free. All are welcome. Come early to ensure seats.
Organised by the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, in association with PalFest Ireland and the Trade Union Friends of Palestine.
