Today, An Saol ó Dheas will be broadcast live from Ionad na Gaeilge Labhartha in UCC, where a special event takes place today to launch a book of writings by Micheál Ua Ciarmhaic, Skelligs Haul, and it will also be announced today that his archives have been presented to the university library.  Ua Ciarmhaic was from Ballinskelligs, a writer, poet, artist, storyteller, folklorist and fisherman.   The collection of material in his archive includes signed copies of all his books, and their manuscripts; correspondence between Micheál and other writers, including Micheál Ó hAirtnéide; reviews; photos; and recorded material.  The library hopes that the collection will be available to the public in a couple of years.  Helen Ní Shé presents.
