Nano Nagle Place, the newly opened city centre Heritage Centre, will host free screenings of interviews with one of Cork's most beloved authors, Frank O’ Connor, as part of the International Short Film Festival.
The interviews were filmed in 1962 and will show various interviews with him at various locations around the city.
The highly anticipated screenings will take place each day from 10am to 5pm at Nano Nagle Place on Douglas Street and will run until Saturday.
The Munster Literature Centre organised the first Frank O'Connor International Short Story Festival in 2000 and the festival, a series of events dedicated to the celebration of the short story and named after one of Cork's most beloved authors, has been growing ever since.
CEO of Nano Nagle Place, Shane Clarke said: "It is a great honour for us and we are looking forward to welcoming all those who wish to look back and hear what Frank O’Connor had to say in his own words.”
