The Mac Gill Summer School
, Glenties (Na Gleannta)
A unique forum for public discourse.
For the past 39 years, the town of Glenties in County Donegal has hosted the MacGill Summer School which has found its inspiration in the life and works of the Navvy Poet, Patrick MacGill. The School, which was founded by Joe Mulholland and a local committee and directed by Joe for most of its existence, has attracted growing numbers of people from all walks of life to engage in public discussion of the urgent issues of the day, social, economic, political and environmental. The list of past contributors to be found on the MacGill website reflects almost every domain of public life in Ireland over the past four decades.
