Poet Laureate Premiere


The beautiful surroundings of St. George’s Heritage Centre, Carrick on Shannon is the venue for an evening of poetry and music where Leitrim’s 2021 Poet Laureate Vincent Woods will premiere a new poem that he has been commissioned to write by Poetry Ireland for this year’s Poetry Town programme that honours and reflects Carrick on Shannon and its people.

Alongside the first public reading of this work, there will also be poetry written and read by Leitrim’s own Stephen Murphy and RĂłisĂ­n Kelly as well as music and song by the wonderful Ailie Blunnie. For those who are unable to join us in person, the event will be filmed and available to watch afterwards on the Leitrim County Council Arts Office Youtube channel.
