Thanks for the plug!

Just a little more info:  With the blessings of the Irish ambassador to Germany and sponsorship from Culture Ireland and the Hamburg Kulturbehörde, this will be Germany's first ever festival of Irish literature.  Taking place at the Monsun Theater in Ottensen, events will run from Friday the 19th to Sunday the 21st and will include a play by Dermot Bolger (about Irish emigrés in Hamburg), writing and poetry workshops, readings from a slew of well known writers and a musical afternoon.
