Fingal Poetry Festival

Organised by Poetry @ the Mills

Arising from a popular annual Poetry at the Mills event in Skerries, 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 

  • Seána Kelly, Festival Chair
  • Enda Coyle-Greene, Artistic Director/Curator,
  • Kim Tully, Hon. Treasurer,
  • Angela Murphy, Hon. Secretary,
  • Ceaití Ní Bheildiúin, Irish Language Coordinator,
  • Matthew Kelly, Designer,
  • Sarah May Rogers, Musical Director,
  • Laura Broadhead, Youth and YA Coordinator,
  • Nunce McAuley, Integration Officer,
  • Julie Smirnova, PR wizard,
  • Keith Burke, singer song writer.
  • Ernestine Woelger, Committee Member,
  • Miriam Carroll, Committee Member

The Festival would not be possible without the support and hard work of all our volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for the festival in September please email us: fingalpoetryfestival@gmail.com.

We also receive huge support from local businesses around the town of Skerries and look forward to working with you all again.
