Responses to The Country Girls Trilogy

Edna O’Brien’s The Country Girls Trilogy made headlines internationally owing to censorship in Ireland. Condemned by one church leader as “a smear on Irish womanhood”, the book was even publicly burnt in Clare. Yet to others, the book was a revelation, enjoying unprecedented readership among young Irish readers, women in particular. This talk by  historian Donal Fallon will examine reactions to O’Brien’s work, both positive and negative, in the context of the Ireland of the time.
