Mark your diaries!

Indeed, do mark your diaries! On Thursday, September 1st, Fingal Poetry Festival will launch with an evening of poetry and spectacular video displays. We are celebrating the light that poetry brings to our lives and the sea – which is precious to all and in peril.


The event is free – saor in aisce – and there is no need to prebook, just drop by Floraville Park at 8.30pm and bring your friends!


The Illumination of Floraville will be followed by the September 15-18th weekend of poetry readings, live music, nature walks, and childrens’ events. Have a read of the full programme on our website!

If you would like to volunteer at the Festival, send us an email at!
