Frank O'Connor | The Lonely Voice - Film Screening
Cork City Libraries’ Frank O’Connor Library, Mayfield, in partnership with Harvest Films and South Wind Blows, presents an online screen of the 2003 documentary Frank O’Connor - The Lonely Voice, directed by Pat Collins. The film marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Frank O’Connor, who at one time lived in Mayfield and attended St. Patrick's Boys' National School, Gardiner's Hill. It explores his life and work and his importance as a short story writer and a librarian, through interviews with family members and other interviewees including the American writer Richard Ford and poets Thomas McCarthy, John Montague and Liam O’Muirthuile.
The film will be available to view on Vimeo during Heritage Week 2020.
