2016 marks the centenary of the Easter Rising and Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Join us for a celebration of Ireland and Irishness through verse, music, song and dance in association with Comóradh ’16, a community organisation created to commemorate this historic year.
Tom Cleary, described by the Poetry Book Society as ‘a refreshingly off-kilter voice’, is your host for an event featuring performances and readings from Irish poets or those of Irish heritage. They include Anthony Costello, Peter Riley, Natalie Rees, John McAuliffe, Kim Moore and Ian Duhig. Following this event there will be a ceilidh – enjoy the poetry, then join the Wild Geese to dance the night away!
