Ireland's largest poetry festival runs from February the 11th to the 14th and promises to be something of a stellar affair with some of the country's best known poets and writers in attendances. The programme outline is a feast of workshops, readings, book launches, prize givings, magazine presentations, anthologies etc. You name it. Of local interest are the poets Tom French whose latest collection "Midnightstown" was published in 2014~and yet to read~ and of course Peter Fallon of the Gallery Press whose own collection "Strong, My Love" was also published this year. So if you should find yourself in that neck of the woods or just fancy a little break after the Christmas, or from the humdrum of the everyday, or whatever, this might be the thing.

Well worth a look!
