I’m really looking forward to the Dromineer Literary Festival in Tipperary this weekend. Highlights include the Friday evening reading, George Szirtes, Thomas McCarthy, Pascale Petit and Billy Ramsell. There are workshops on Saturday and a reading by Breda Wall Ryan, Victoria Kennefick and Maeve O’Sullivan. On Sunday, Dave McAvinchey, Caitríona Ní Chléirchín and I will be performing at the Dánta Grádha Reading (Love Poems) with harpist Laura Hogan. There’s also a mindfulness event, a songwriting workshop, a play and a photography exhibition. You can view the full programme here.
