Poetry Ireland Centre Development
Our plans to redevelop
11 Parnell Square East in
partnership with the Irish
Heritage Trust continue
apace.
Anne Hendrick joined Poetry Ireland
as Development Manager in 2019,
as part of RAISE, the Arts Council’s
fundraising capacity building
programme.
Poetry Ireland’s Friend and Patron
membership scheme was launched
and gives members the opportunity
to stay close to Irish poetry with lots
of key benefits, whilst also supporting
the work of Poetry Ireland.
Poetry Ireland and the Irish Heritage
Trust have secured a commitment
of €3.86 million from the Urban
Regeneration and Development
Fund.
This will enable the creation of a
significant cultural hub for the north
inner city, incorporating the Poetry
Ireland Centre.
The conservation-led refurbishment
of No. 11 Parnell Square will also
open up this important historic
building as a public amenity and
shared heritage space for events and
activities for the widest possible
audience. Stay tuned for news of our
fundraising drive in early 2020.
