Join Sharon in Donegal to hear about the literature and culture of the county and learn how to talk about art, poetry and books.

Sharon meets poet Cathal Ó Searcaigh, who lives on a small farm at Gortahork in the Donegal Gaeltacht.

Ó Searcaigh has, over the past decade, emerged as one of Ireland's most distinguished poets and is fast gaining international renown through translations of his work.

Sharon pays a visit to Tory Island where she meets some local people to see what life is like on the island. A main topic for conversation is the culture of the island and its famous school of painters.

The soundscape this week takes us to a library for some quiet relaxation.

‘An Grá Faoi Ghlas’ - In this weeks episode of ‘An Grá faoi Glas’ Aingeal shows a lot of interest in Stiofán and Rita and Aingeal have an argument. Sorcha is finding the whole thing a bit claustrophobic - as Darren finds out when he interrupts her reading!
