We’re still in recovery mode after our inaugural Amergin Solstice Poetry Gathering: Éigse na Gréine, to give it its full title. We were delighted with the festival, which, to be honest, surpassed all our expectations. To judge by the complimentary comments, texts, emails and phone calls that we have received our delight was widely shared among those who attended. Have a look in the Gallerytab for a visual flavour of the festival.

If you are one of those who shared our delight, please spread the word (#amerginpoetry is the magic formula). If you are not, we would appreciate your telling us how you think we can improve the festival. You can contact us at manager@amerginpoetry.com or director@amerginpoetry.com

The festival’s success has energised us, and the outline of next year’s festival is already in place. Our intention is that the Amergin poem, read as a contemporary ecological manifesto, will be the guiding inspiration for the 2019 festival, running from 21stto 23rdJune. An exciting range of poets and musicians is already in place. Save the dates, and watch this space!

Our 2018 programme is now archived (see Programme 2018 tab).
