MacGill Summer School & Arts Week

Date: 16 July 2017 - 21 July 2017
Where: Glenties
Venue: Glenties
Tel: +353 (0)86 0865047

Founded by Dr Joe Mulholland and a local committee in Glenties to celebrate the memory of local writer, Patrick MacGill, some of whose books became bestsellers in Britain in the first decades of the 20th century, the School has consistently been a source of innovative and fresh thinking on a whole range of social, economic and political ideas.

It brings together every July, government ministers, members of the opposition, heads of industry, trade union leaders, economists, sociologists, church leaders, members of the judiciary as well as public representatives from Northern Ireland. For a week in July, the small village of Glenties becomes a major, non-partisan centre of debate to which the public can gain access for a few Euros.
