Make sure to tune into the RTÉ Radio 1 Christmas Poetry Programme on Christmas Day at 7pm on Radio 1.
Poetry Ireland and the Poetry Programme were delighted to work with Kilkenny Castle and the Office of Public Works to present the special event, hosted by Olivia O'Leary and recorded in front of a live audience in the beautiful Picture Gallery at Kilkenny Castle in late November.
The programme will feature a festive line up of poetry and music including poets Thomas McCarthy, Enda Wyley, Adam Wyeth and Victoria Melkovska, along with singer/songwriter Ailbhe Reddy.
Actor Sean Campion and Aaron O'Dea and Orla Browne, members of the Rhyme Rag Ensemble, also join the line up by reading Christmas poems during the programme.
