To Find A Heathen Place & Sound A Bell by Kerrie Hardie & Olivia O'Leary

AD 591. Rome has fallen and Europe is in chaos. In Ireland, a handful of monks leave the austere rule of Congall of Bangor. One of them, Fiachra, walks south to found a monastery at Ullard. Others, led by Columbanus of Leinster, set sail, carrying the teachings of the Celtic Church into the very heart of Europe.

Through a mix of poetry and music, To Find a Heathen Place and Sound a Bell tells the story of these monks. Written by poet and novelist Kerrie Hardie with broadcaster Olivia O'Leary, and performed by musicians David Power and Ciaran Somers and readers Vincent Higgins, Olivia O'Leary, Alan Counihan and Eamonn Hunt, this unique and poetic work resurrects the forgotten story of Columbanus, a saint of the early Celtic Church and arguably one of the most consequential figures in European history.

Supported by Artlinks, a partnership of the four Local Authority Arts Offices in Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford local authorities.
