Poetry Ireland and the Irish Writers Centre return to Boston for the third year with Bualadh BOSton, a boutique literature festival that brings together some of Ireland’s finest contemporary writers in historic Boston, the capital of Irish America. 

In autumn 2018, Poetry Ireland and The Gallery Press joined forces to publish Calling Cards, introducing a new generation of Irish-language poets to a wider audience.

Calling Cards is the latest in a distinguished line of Irish poetry anthologies and is edited by poets Peter Fallon and Aifric MacAodha. It includes 10 Irish-language poets, a carefully selected group of poems by each of them and translation into English by some of Ireland’s finest poets.

Join Peter Fallon and Aifric MacAodha as they read poems and translations from the collection.

‘a remarkable range of voices and dialects….this new anthology should be welcomed, purchased, read and celebrated’.

Bualadh BOSton is brought to you by the Irish Writers Centre, Poetry Ireland and the Consulate General of Ireland, kindly supported by Culture Ireland, the Global Leadership Institute at Boston College, and the Irish American Partnership.
