Bob Quinn Interview with Lorna Siggins

22nd September 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Bob Quinn has been variously a writer, filmmaker, photographer, forester and wood sculptor for the past fifty years. Born in Dublin, he began as a producer-director in RTE and has lived in the Gaeltacht of Connemara, Co. Galway since 1970. He is a member of Aosdána, NUIG will award the Irish parliament of artists and this November an honorary doctorate.

His 70-odd drama and documentary films include ‘The Atlantean Quartet’; ‘Poitín’; ‘Budawanny’, ‘Cloch’; ‘Graceville’, etc.  His work has largely featured the Irish-speaking community in which he lives. His last film, ‘Bog Graffiti’, a short meditation on climate change, was shown at the Galway Film Fleadh and the Rome Film Festa.

This event also features a screening of ‘Cloch’, Bob’s personal favourite of his short works.

His books include ‘Smokey Hollow, ‘An Tír Aneol’ (photography); ‘Maverick – a dissident view of broadcasting’; ‘The Atlantean Irish’ and ‘The Accompanist’ (a novel).

Lorna Siggins is a print and radio journalist, and former Irish Times western and marine correspondent. She is author of Everest Calling, Mary Robinson: The Woman Who Took Power in the Park,  Mayday!Mayday!, and Once Upon a Time in the West: the Corrib gas controversy.
