Thank you for the 2021 Festival!

Thank you!!! What a time we had!

Poems in windows, poems on trees, poems in lights, poems on benches, poems in films, poems in schools and nursing homes, poems at the foot of a Martello Tower, under trees in Ardgillan Park and in an urban park, poems in Baldongan, poems in people’s gardens and poems in a historic courtyard!

Poems in song, poems in Irish, poems in motion through ISL interpretation.

Poets and musicians, song and even a little dancing….

The Festival Team want to thank everybody who helped us make this such a memorable weekend!We gratefully acknowledge the continued financial support of Arts Council Ireland, Fingal County Council, Poetry Ireland / Éigse Éireann. They made it possible for us to programme an inclusive and covid proof series of events. We also want to thank the sponsors of the Fingal Poetry Prize and An Fiach Dubh, DHL Global Forwarding and Country Crest respectively.

And, of course, all the wonderful poets and musicians who so generously shared their art with us.

For more, take a look at our pictorial review of the 2021 festival.

Finally, a huge thank you to the wonderful volunteers who were essential to convert our plans to reality. See you next year!
