Online Conversazione ~ The Macdermots of Ballycloran

Chapters 1 – 12

We’re going back to where it all started, Trollope’s first novel The Macdermots of Ballycloran published by Newby in 1847. Set in County Leitrim in Ireland, where Trollope was working as Assistant Postal Surveyor, The Macdermots of Ballycloran is a powerful first novel and well worth reading.

We will be meeting online every two weeks using Zoom to discuss the relevant chapters and keep in touch with each other. The meetings will be unstructured with everyone’s input welcome. The meetings will not be recorded.
