I was on Arena, RTÉ Radio 1 yesterday evening, reading my poem ‘Drunk’.
You can listen on Soundcloud here.
This is ahead of a live performance with the program on Easter Monday.
As part of Cruinniú na Cásca, Arena will be broadcast live from the St Stephen’s Green stage. From 11am to 1pm, Seán Rocks and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra with conductor Gearóid Grant will be joined onstage by The Hothouse Flowers, Lisa Lambe, Fiachna Ó Braonáin, Martin Brunsden, Seán Keane, Chris Meehan and his Redneck Friends, and lots more.
I’m scheduled to be performing around 11.15am, if you want to listen in!
Agus ag a 2 a chlog an lá céanna beidh ceardlann filíochta do dhaoine óga á reachtáil agam. Bí liom agus scaip an scéal le do thoil!
Calling all young poets a bhfuil Gaeilge acu!
This hands-on workshop with writer and curator Ciara Ní É welcomes families to have some fun le filíocht.
Cabhróidh Ciara libh le hainm cleite a chumadh, dánta áille a scíobh le tabhairt abhaile, agus spraoi a bhaint as an teanga!
This workshop will focus on writing poems as Gaeilge, but is laid out in a way that it can be enjoyed by those with a cúpla focal, or cúpla foclóirí d’fhocail!
