Tá aithne mhór ar Mhaidhc Dainín Ó Sé ar fud na tíre seo de bharr a shaothar litríochta. Tá sé mar dhuine de phríomh-scríbhneoirí na Gaeilge agus tá naoi leabhar déag dá chuid foilsithe, ina measc tá Madraí na nOcht gCos, Is Glas Iad na Cnoic agus A Thig Ná Tit Orm, atá ar shiollabas na Gaeilge do scrúdú na hardteistiméireachta. Dírbheathaisnéis atá sa leabhar A Thig Ná Tit Orm ina insíonn Maidhc scéal a bheatha dúinn – a óige i gCorca Dhuibhne agus an saol a chaith sé i Sasana agus i Chicago, Meiriceá. Tá roinnt leabhar ficsean scrite aige chomh maith agus i 2006 bhain sé amach duais Oireachtais sa rannóg Ficsean Éadrom.

Tá aithne ar Mhaidhc Dainín chomh maith mar cheoltóir sna cúig cúigí agus thar lear. Tá ceol bainte as a bhosca ag aige i dteannta shárcheoltóirí na tíre seo – Joe Cooley agus Joe Burke ina measc – agus is i gcomhluadar na máistrí seo a thug sé a chuid ceoil chun foirfeachta. Ar ndóigh, beidh Maidhc agus a bhosca ceoil le cloisint thart ar thábhairní an Leasa Mhóir le linn na deireadh seachtaine chomh maith!

A man of many talents, Maidhc Dainín, as well as being a fine musician and singer, is a well-known author in his native Irish language, with nineteen books published so far, including Madraí na nOcht gCos and Is Glas Iad na Cnoic. His autobiography, A Thig Ná Tit Orm, which tells of his youth in West Kerry and the time he later spent in England and Chicago, USA, is studied by thousands of students each year as it is on the syllabus for the Leaving Certificate. He has also published a number of works of fiction, and in 2006 he won the Oireachtas prize in the Light Fiction category.

Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé is as versatile an artist as you will find. He is well-travelled and has brought his music from Chicago to west-Kerry’s Carrachán. He has played with and learned from the cream of Ireland’s musicians – including Joe Burke and Joe Cooley. Needless to say, where Maidhc goes, his button accordion goes also, and no doubt his music will be heard around and about Lismore during the weekend!

Details of this year’s festival programme can be found elsewhere on this website.
