In pursuit of The Maigue Poets

Michael Hartnett, an outstanding weaver of words and concepts as Béarla agus Gaeilge.

TAKING the pursuit of poetry and the spoken word out of the city and into West Limerick culture, Limerick Writers’ Centre continues its lively summer of events. The Centre makes a tradition of homage to The Maigue Poets with an informative trail of their homesteads, habitats and inspirations annually. Set aside Friday August 16 and arrive at Dolan’s Bar, Dock Road for 11.30am to join this year’s bus tour of significant sites.

You will return to Limerick for 3.30pm after this gregarious day out, €15.

Do a Harnett, forsake the world of earn and pay for Maigue Country. Above is 1/3 verses of mayhem and magic

“Join us on a magical trip around Co Limerick for a guided tour of places associated with the poets of the Gaelic tradition,” Dominic Taylor invites us. “These are Michael Hartnett, Daithi O Bruadair, Sean O Tuama and many more, taking in Adare, Knockfierna for the poets’ trail, Kilmallock and Croom — home of The Maigue Poets.”

August 16’s tour guide will be Michael Liston and you can book in advance on limerickwriterscentre
