No to Censorship at Irish Literary Festivals #unamullally #repeal #ILF #elainefeeney #emmettkirwan

In a worrying development, Dublin City Council have forced cancellation of a pro-choice event at the International Literature Festival. Here is the Event Organiser Una Mullally on twitter this morning:

The event was to include the well known & much admired performance writers Emmett Kirwan, & Elaine Feeney – with whom I published a pamphlet ‘Indiscipline’ way back in 2006 & did a very enjoyable performance tour with in 2010.

Elaine Feeney has quite rightly called for Dublin City Council to reverse the decision this morning:

Were this call to be backed by other writers appearing at the festival threatening a boycott, the decision would be quickly reversed.
