Derry-Londonderry, Overcome! Lughnasa FrielFest
Celebrating Brian Friel’s passion for all things Homeric and transposing the story from Greece to Europe’s Western edge the festival presents readings from Homer’s great epic of voyage, shipwreck and homecoming across beaches on the Donegal Wild Atlantic Way and Derry Causeway Coast. The readings’ finale on Rathmullan of the Lough Swilly echo the safe harbour and refuge from shipwreck of John Newton who subsequently composed Amazing Grace as thanks for his safe homecoming.
