Poetry Day Ireland 2024 with ArtNetdlr

Thursday 25th April, 12.30

Walters Bar, Dun Laoghaire

Poetry Day Ireland 2024 will take place on Thursday 25th April and ArtNetdlr is thrilled to take part in it once again. Poetry Day Ireland is an annual island-wide celebration of poetry which invites the nation to read, write, and share a poem on the day.

The theme for this year is “Good Sports” celebrating the good sport in all of us, the drive to give it a go or to have a crack at it. Join us as we celebrate the Olympic year, the clash of the ash, the narrow miss, the kick of a ball, the roar of the crowd, the crushing defeat, the herculean feat, the triumph, and our willingness to be good sports in all aspects of our lives.

All are welcome to get involved. What’s your favourite poem? What speaks to you, what drives the good sport in you? Bring your own poetry or a favourite poem to Walters, Thursday 25th April 12.30, just one poem each, and maybe a sentence or two why you like it. Let’s celebrate #PoetryDayIRL together.
