CUISLE International Poetry Festival starts this evening.
Paul Muldoon & Nuala NiDhomhnaill are opening it.
Nuala I know from Listowel Writers’ Week 2007. She led a poetry workshop I went to. This will be my first chance to meet her since then, though we had a little email contact. Paul Muldoon I’ve never seen.
It’s a Wednesday, so it clashes with the White House Poets - the Barney Sheehan gig in White House pub on O’Connell Street Limerick. Maybe the White House will be on after the 7pm launch. Maybe Nuala & Paul could be enticed to read with the little people. I haven’t looked up to see who’s guest in White House this evening.
I’ll keep you posted via Twitter. You can follow me on Twitter by searching for @omaniblog.
