Cúirt will continue its successful partnership with Galway City and County Council Libraries.

Distinguished visiting writers, including David Coventry, will read from his work at special event in Loughrea.


In a new partnership with Creative New Zealand, Cúirt is delighted to present leading New Zealand novelist David Coventry who will read with Galway based writer Alan McMonagle, author of Ithaca. The event will take place at 4pm on Saturday, 13th April in the Town Hall Theatre. The event will be chaired by Journalist Paula Shields.

David Coventry’s first novel The Invisible Mile – described by The New York Times Review of Books as a “gorgeous… psychological thriller” and The Guardian as “a literary novel of the highest order” – has been translated into five languages. His new work Dance Prone is in the final stages of completion. The novel is set in the USA and North Africa and examines the nihilism, violence and intellectualism of 1980s post-punk and hardcore.


“Bruising, beautiful and ultimately transcendent. I loved The Invisible Mile because it felt how writing feels, and it shows us something great and long-past without a trace of nostalgia.” – Markus Zusak
