This weekend there’s a lot of excitement in the air, with Christmas just around the corner Galway is well and truly buzzing with festive cheer. There’s beautiful exhibitions, last minute shopping tips, delicious treats and so much more!
This series involves a group of poets of different cultural backgrounds living in Ireland, reading both their own work and the work of poets associated with Coole Park including Lady Gregory, WB Yeats and JM Synge. It’s a beautiful series of poems that was commissioned as part of the artistic conversation between past and present.
