A note on the word “athrú” — an Irish word
“Athrú” is the Irish word for “change”.
An audio account of Athrú 2016
I recorded a wealth of audio files at Athru 2016, including:
- speaker presentations
- interviews with the conference organisers
- conversations with attendees
I will publish these audio files here as and when they are ready, so please check this post again soon.
In the meantime, here are some audio snippets from four of the organisers, Gill Carroll, Jess Murphy, Hilary O’Hagan Brennan and Lisa Regan. There is also a short interview with Maria Canabal, a journalist, lawyer and author who travelled from France to speak at Athru 2016.
