Poetry Day, Tomorrow!

Live broadcast from Dundalk FM (hai) at 11.30am, from Dundalk Town Hall: Patrick Chapman, Paddy Dillon and my good self will be on air discussing poetry with Harry Lee. Tune in here (you need Real Player/MS Windows Media Player) to listen live at 11.30am... from anywhere in the world (you do the time zones: if this is GMT here...)*

And all three of us will be "Louth and Proud" (say it in a Dundalk accent and substitute 'd' for 'th') at lunchtime in Dundalk Town Hall, for free, for anyone who cares to come in!

There are lots of other poetry events taking place in every county (yes, all 32 of them) in Ireland tomorrow to celebrate 30 years of Poetry Ireland, as well as establishing 2nd October as Ireland's Poetry Day - yay! Over 100 poets have answered the call to bring poetry to a venue near you!

Ask not what poetry can do for you, but what you can do for poetry... to misquote :)

*There is a repeat tonight (October 2nd) at 11.15pm, but I hope to have a recording up here soon!

###@@***s I missed it - any chance of a repeat or online catchup?

Repeat tonight at 11.15pm - which is probably too late for most people. I'll be looking for a recording, which I'll post ASAP.

Oh, to be in Ireland where live poetry flourishes!

BarbaraS said...

Well, you could help to make it flourish where you live, Dick... :p
perhaps?

I love a bit of a flourish. Howd'it go? Our North Kildare Reading was a blast - a veritable feast
