Uimhir a Cúig



Uimhir a Cúig means Number Five in Irish, and henceforth there will always be a little part of Numéro Cinq that is Irish. Herein you will find exhibited some of the best in contemporary Irish literature and art. We launched Uimhir a Cúig with the amazing and uncanny Galway artist Louise Manifold — text and voiceover from the massively celebrated Kevin Barry, winner of last year’s Dublin IMPAC International Literary Award for his novel The City of Bohane as well as the Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Prize. Our second installment was John MacKenna‘s short story “The Angel Said.”
