The Battle Of The Battle Of The Book; nine stories in search of an ear. The Sandy Field Writers present a soundscape based on the legendary Sligo battle at Cúl Dreimhne, near present-day Drumcliff. Instigated by Colmcille, the battle is the first recorded conflict over copyright. The High King’s ruling ‘To Every Cow Its Calf, To Every Book Its Copy’ began a series of events ending in Colmcille’s exile to the Scottish isle of Iona.
