Poetry and Music in Cavan Museum

Our Cavan-Meath LitLab group is participating in a reading for St Patrick's Festival in Cavan County Museum, Ballyjamesduff on this Thursday evening at 8pm.

It should be a good night with music by John McBreen and Pete O'Connor and poetry in Irish from Ailis Ní Ainle. And the LitLab will do their usual mix of prose and poetry.

We are encouraged to include at least a nod towards the festival so I'm going to read my recent English translation of a poem written in Irish in 1581 by Sligo poet Tadhg Dall Ó hÚigínn.

Also I was recently challenged to write a poem on the theft of the relic of St Laurence O'Toole from Dublin so I might include that as well.

Thursday 15th March 2012, 8pm.
Everyone welcome, admission free.
