Nobel Prize winner novelist Heinrich Böll
spent many summers between 1955 and 1983
writing in his cottage
in Dugort (where we live) on Achill Island.
Since 1992 his cottage has been used as residency for
writers and artsists from all over the world.
Last week end, for the 5th time took place the
Heinrich Böll Memorial week end
with readings, exhibitions, workshops,
film projections and guided walks.
