For This: Poems for our Ireland

Saturday 26th March at 3.30pm - €12/10/8

It’s time to think about Ireland. Where have we come to - and
where are we going? What are the things we should now
hold onto - and of what should we let go?

Join us for a unique event in which several of the
participating poets in this year’s festival, together with a
number of special guest readers, will come together for a
reading of poems which speak to them about Ireland, and
the experience of living in Ireland, during these trying times.

With poets Dave Lordan, Joseph Woods, Borbála Faragó,
Michael Cronin, Sinéad Morrissey, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill,
Leanne O’Sullivan and Brian Lynch.

Special guests will include musician Jinx Lennon,
broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan, Senator David Norris,
novelist Dermot Bolger, historian Diarmaid Ferriter, Alice
Leahy, director of Trust Ireland and poet and The Irish Times
Managing Editor Gerard Smyth.

Introduced by writer and broadcaster Vincent Woods.
