Aran Island Writers : Aran – Inis Mór – is the birth-place of writers Liam O Flaherty ,Tom O Flaherty, Máirtín Ó Direáin, Breandán Ó hEithir and others. The Island of Aran has stimulated many famous writers from John Millington Synge to Séamas Heaney to put pen to paper. We will welcome clubs and groups who wish to relax or to explore, to read and indeed to write. A programme of events will be drawn up for the group.
In 1996 a memorial garden was opened in memory of Liam and Tom Ó Flaherty in Gort na gCapall.The sculpture was designed and built by the Galway based artist Pádraic Reaney. A visit to this garden is recommended when you visit the Island.
