Poetry Day

Pictured above in St Patrick's Cathedral, Loman Street,Trim, Michael Farry reading one of his favourite poems "Father and Son" by F. R. Higgins. The event was organised by the Boyne Writers' to celebrate All Ireland Poetry Day 7th October. It was an enjoyable occasion with many contributers reading their favourite poems to an enthusiastic audience.

At 7pm another successful poetry event was held in Navan library organised by Tom French of the Meath County Library service and Tommy Murray Meath Writers' Circle. Just like in Trim the event was well supported.
I enjoyed the event enormously but had to leave early due to other commitments but I managed to take a few photos before leaving.

Well done Michael and thanks for your support for the Trim reading. The cathedral is a wonderful venue!

Yes Michael the cathedral is indeed a beautiful venue. The readings went well and dare I say it all without the aid of a bell or whistle!
