The weekend of 14th and 15th June 2014 will bring together some of the most intriguing international minds – novelists, journalists, film-makers, poets, theatre directors, war correspondents, biographers, artists and political commentators – for a weekend of stimulating dialogue and discussion.
The 2014 speaker list will include plenty of new faces (Mariella Frostrup, Deborah Levy, Eimear McBride, Damien Barr, Audrey Magee, Roy Foster, Tim McInerney, Patrick McGrath, Sebastian Barry, Louis de Bernieres, Joe O’Connor, Hugo Hamilton, John Boorman) and re-visits of some guests from previous years (William Dalrymple, Donal Ryan, Giles Duley, Ben Anderson, John Banville, Stephen Frears). Full programme will be announced by the end of February. A strictly limited number of weekend tickets will go on sale in the coming days.
We are very proud to have welcomed great minds such as Dorothy Cross, Fintan O’Toole, Martin Amis, PJ Harvey, Michael Craig Martin, Selina Hastings, Don McCullin, Anne Enright, Neil Jordan, Ben Okri, Paul Murray, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Lenny Abrahamson, Mike Scott, AC Grayling, Lionel Shriver, Craig Brown, and Colm Toibin to Borris Village for a weekend in the past two years – and we think we are on course for a truly spectacular June 2014.
