I attended Poetry in Motion last night in the Droichead Arts Centre cafe, Stockwell Street, Drogheda. The featured reader was Manchan Magan, a travel broadcaster, turned novelist who entertained us with stories of his travels, especially in Africa. He also spoke about the Irish Language as he made a series called No Bearla about travelling around Ireland speaking only Irish. I really enjoyed the night and read five of my poems.
