The Leitrim author is regarded as one of the most important writers of the latter half of the twentieth century.

The John McGahern Barracks Exhibition will be officially launched online later this morning at half past eleven.

The project has been worked on for several years by the Cootehall Community Development Group which took over the premises 8 years ago.

The barracks has been renovated at a cost of €200,000 and up to €25,000 has been spent on the exhibition itself.
