Culture Night
On Culture Night 2018 we
presented a (somewhat!) wild
night of poetry at 11 Parnell
The evening included readings from
the Trócaire competition-winners,
WRaPParound, Poetry Therapy with
Enda Wyley and a Zine Workshop
with Sophie Meehan. A Wild Card
open mic night featured guest
performers Peter Sirr, The Poet Geoff,
Jane Willow, Supriya Dhaliwal, Ciara
Ní É, Martina Evans, and finished
with Amy Conroy’s reading of
Ginsberg’s ‘Howl’.
Also on Culture Night, Poetry Ireland
and the National Museum of Ireland
marked 100 years of women’s suffrage
with a very special poetry reading
at Seanad Éireann, presented in
collaboration with the Houses of the
Oireachtas. Hosted by broadcaster
and journalist Olivia O’Leary,
the event featured readings from
Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Moya Cannon
and Martina Evans.
Visitors to Seanad Éireann on
Culture Night were also able to
view two rare pastels by WB Yeats
on long term loan to Poetry Ireland
from the Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry
