In partnership with Yeats 2015, we are pleased to present the Poet Laureate and National Poets of the UK and Ireland coming together to pay tribute to WB Yeats on his birthday in his spiritual home of Sligo.
The laureates/national poets have never performed together in Ireland so this promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime poetry experience and celebration to honour WB Yeats. President Michel D Higgins, Patron of Yeats 2015, will be the special guest at the event.
The evening will also feature young musicians and poets and a special guest appearance by Mary MacPartlan and Aidan Brennan.
The poets are:
Chair Irish Poetry, Paula Meehan
Poet Laureate England - Carol Ann Duffy
National Poet of Wales- Gillian Clarke
National Poet of Scotland, Scots Makar - Liz Lochhead
London Laureate - Aisling Fahey
Northern Irish Poet - Sinead Morrissey
Location: Knocknarea Arena
Time: Sat June 13, 8.30pm
Tickets €15 / €10
