Macdermots of Ballycloran: Oxford Seminar

The Trollope Society Oxford Seminar Group Meeting on Monday 27th October had a lively discussion of The Macdermots.

Helen Rutter, a leading light in the Drumsna Trollope activities, provided a thoughtful introduction, a spirited reading of the dialogue, and an assurance that Trollope had captured the dialect as well as any 19th century author.
