Other Projects

Our Poet in Residence works on other projects - engaging, inspiring and supporting many communities in their interactions with poetry. Here are just a few!

  • Live and recorded readings for Irish and international audiences. This includes Catherine Ann’s curation and presentation of the Poetry Ireland contribution to the Frank Harte Festival in September 2020. Living Ghosts: A Tribute to Frank Harte in Poetry and Song has been streamed more than 1,000 times to date – you can watch it back on our YouTube page.
  • Catherine Ann composed the lyrics for Ode to Joy, a nationwide tribute to frontline staff by the Royal Irish Academy of Music
  • She developed the Behind the Lines video series with Poetry Ireland’s Education Department. And held online poetry clinics for Poetry Day Ireland in April 2020
  • Catherine Ann is also involved in school visits, residences, and writing workshops
