Macroom Library First Friday Writers

  • Thursday 25 April, 2.00pm
  • Macroom Library, Railway View, Main Street, Macroom, County Cork.
  • Tickets: FREE

The theme for this year is “Good Sports” celebrating the good sport in all of us, the drive to give it a go or to have a crack at it. Join us as we celebrate the Olympic year, the clash of the ash, the narrow miss, the kick of a ball, the roar of the crowd, the crushing defeat, the herculean feat, the triumph, and our willingness to be good sports in all aspects of our lives. Join us at Macroom Library for an hour of reading and listening and chatting about all things poetry.

Everyone is welcome, bring a young friend, an older friend, make friends on the day. Come and share your own poetry or a poem by another poet or listen to others as we celebrate Poetry Ireland's Poetry Day. Tell your friends and neighbours.

A special welcome to our #Alzheimer friends and anyone feeling #alone. A warm welcome awaits you. Your host for the event is Bernadette Gallagher, Author of a book of poems, 'The Risen Tree' just published by Revival Press, Limerick. Bernadette and members of the First Friday Writers and staff from Macroom library look forward to seeing you on the day.
