Kylemore Book Club: Rugby and the West of Ireland

The first week of the newest Kylemore Book Club provided an introduction to rugby, as well as the historical context for the phrase “To Hell or to Connacht.” The sport of rugby and the history of the West of Ireland serve as the basis for the following weeks of the book club, where ideas of resilience and determination are built upon with the music, sport, politics, and history of the West of Ireland and abroad.
