Anthology for the River Shannon

Help launch a poetry book to raise funds to protect the Shannon!

The background is the proposal  to drain upwards of 500m litres of water per day from the headwaters of the Shannon to supply Dublin's needs. River Shannon Protection Alliance has organized a book of poetry to fund efforts to save the Shannon.

The anthology is called  Anthology for a River and it is edited by the well-known Limerick poet, editor, novelist and playwright, Teri Murray.

I have a poem in the anthology called Diving into Lough Derg which was begun at a workshop with Tony Curtis at Dromineer Festival a couple of years ago. Dromineer is on Lough Derg, part of the Shannon system. Picture above is from their website.

The anthology is being launched on Thursday, 26 July, at 8pm in the White House pub on O'Connell Street, Limerick. Meet and hear many of the 38 contributing poets. Free refreshments. Refreshments served.

More, including a poem from the anthology, here.
