A Poet's Rising

It was an absolutely wonderful evening last night at the Irish Writers' Centre. A packed house celebrated A Poet's Rising, with beautiful haunting music by Colm Mac Con Iomaire, and poems by Eilean Ni Chuilleanain, Paul Muldoon, Jessica Traynor, Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill, Theo Dorgan and Thomas McCarthy.

Thanks to Valerie Bistany and Padraig Burke for my invitation, and to everyone in the Irish Writers' Centre, and the Arts Council of Ireland, who helped to create these important works for years to come.

A Poet's Rising app will be available following the broadcast of the poems which will take place on the anniversary of the Rising, 22- 29th April 2016. The poems will also be printed in the Irish Times during this period.
