Wednesday, August 19th, 2020 - 6 minutes

Crónán O’ Doibhlin tells Dave about UCC’s acquisition of The Great Book of Ireland, (Leabhar Mór na hÉireann) - ‘Ireland’s modern-day Book of Kells’ - a gallery of original modern Irish art, poetry, and musical compositions produced between 1989 and 1991 and all bound in one single volume. The book is one and a half times the size of The Book of Kells and required over 110 calfskins to complete.
