Culture Night activities will commence with a Creative Writing Workshop led by Westmeath poet Jackie Gorman in Abbey Road Studios Community space from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm.  Participants will take part in a short introductory workshop exploring nature, ecology and place. Jackie’s poetry has been published in several journals including Poetry Ireland Review, The Lonely Crowd and The Honest Ulsterman.
