I received an e-mail that I thought might be of interest to some:
Irish-language poet Máire Mhac an tSaoi will be reading at Princeton U. on Friday Dec. 12 at 4:30. Program is free and open to the public.

Máire Mhac an tSaoi was born in 1922 and is the daughter of Sean MacEntee, former Minister of Finance. Last I spoke to her, she was working on a memoir of her childhood during the early years of the Irish Free State.
Sean MacEntee (1889 - 1984) was sentenced to death for his part in the Easter Rising in 1916 but his sentence was changed to life imprisonment.
He was actually released under amnesty in 1917.
Máire Mhac an tSaoi is a prolific poet, researcher, editor, translator,
and reviewer, and her works have been translated into English, Hebrew, French, German, and Japanese.
