Fingal Poetry Festival
Organised by Poetry at Skerries Mills
Arising from a popular annual Poetry at the Mills event, in 2020 we expanded our offering of poetry and music to a full weekend festival, the Fingal Poetry Festival. Skerries Mills will remain our central venue, but expect other iconic Skerries locations to feature in the programme, making the most of the interaction between art and the natural and built environment of our town.
Special guest poets will be joined by more local voices and invited musicians for a celebration of poetry and music.
The festival core team consists of Enda Coyle-Greene, Artistic Director/Curator,
Ernestine Woelger, Director/Festival Organiser,
Grainne Enright, Treasurer,
Angela Murphy, Hon. Secretary,
Paul Enright, Musical Director.
A founder of the successful Skerries Soundwaves Festival, Ernestine directed the festival for many years, in rotation with Grainne Enright.
Angela is one of the people who helped set up Soundwaves in 2004.
Paul has collaborated with Soundwaves and the previous Poetry at the Mills events.
