McGahern Tribute

From RTÉ I see that the IFI in Dublin will host a John McGahern tribute on 1 April from 11am to 3pm, which will be introduced by Colm Tóibín.

The programme features rare screenings of 'Wheels' and 'The Rockingham Shoot'; 'Wheels' is an adaptation of McGahern's 'Nightlines' story of the same name while 'The Rockingham Shoot' is a one-off, BBC Northern Ireland drama written for television by the author.

Also screening on 1 April is the adaptation of 'The Leave-Taking', 'The Lost Hour', and its sequel, 'The Key', which is based on McGahern's short story 'The Bomb Box'.
