The SiarScéal Anthology is a literary collective from local and national writers, celebrating five years of work submitted to the SiarScéal Festival Hanna Greally Literary Awards, painting word-themed exhibitions, other publications and choral productions.SiarScéal Festival is a historical, literary, bilingual festival hosted annually in County Roscommon, inspired by the culture and heritage of Roscommon’s river basins.
SiarScéal Anthology is a living testimony and representation of the lives and history of the people of Roscommon and national writers through the medium of poetry, prose and short stories. From personal memoirs in rural life exploring the thread of our existence, emigration, the famine ships, Queen Medbh, historical landmarks and fables, to our two majestic rivers, the Shannon and the Suck.
Metaphorically, as an archaeological dig fusing our ancestry to the present time, gleaning from the core of our existence 'what’s buried beneath', this collection allows the reader to empathise with the nostalgic imagery created throughout the yesteryears of life in the west. It will find its pride of place amongst our cultural social history in memory of times past and passing. - Gwen Bond, founder of SiarScéal.
