Cuisle International Poetry Festival, Limerick, 24th - 26th October

 
 
Pictured above is The Stony Thursday Book from 2011 which included my poem Glove.  It was edited by Mary Coll.  This year my poem Into the Night is included in the anthology.  Brian Kirk's poem The Poet's Work is also included this year and I'm looking forward to seeing all the work included. 

This year the Cuisle Limerick City International Poetry Festival will feature evening performances by Anthony Cronin, Biddy Jenkinson, Macdara Woods, Hugh Maxton, David Wheatley, Adam Wyeth, and Jo Slade.
 
We especially welcome poets from our partner festivals, which this year is extended to Italy. Veronika Dintinjana (Slovenia), John Davies (UK), and Marco Viscomi (Italy) will be bringing their talents to Limerick.
 
The lunchtime readings at the Hunt Museum feature Ron Carey (Thursday) and Kerrie O'Brien (Friday). Other events include screenings of poetry films, an open mic session, a varied programme for schools, and the Young Poet of the Year Award. In addition, the yearly poetry anthology The Stony Thursday Book, edited this year by Paddy Bushe, will be launched at the festival.
