Celebrating Poetry and Music
Thanks to all presenters, those supporting the organisation and filming, and those attending, our Poetry Event was a fantastic success, and so was our creation of a Poetry Wall.
Led by Paula Meehan, this event included readings by Paula, Caitríona Ní Chléirchín, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Moya Cannon, Theo Dorgan, Caitríona Clutterbuck, Paul Perry, Tempermental MissElayneous, Tony Curtis – together with a selection of other up and coming new poetic voices.
Musical interludes were provided by Grammy-winning folk singer Susan McKeown.
The Poetry Wall included handwritten (mostly), signed versions of poems.
These manuscripts, along with the poetry readings captured on the day, will be added will be added to the Irish Poetry Reading Archive.
