He is a member of Aosdána, the Irish Assembly of artists. He has won the Patrick Kavanagh Award, the Alice Hunt Bartlett and O'Shaughnessy Prize for Poetry and the Ireland Funds Annual Literary Award. He was Editor of Poetry Ireland Review and The Cork Review. His new collection, PROPHECY, was published by Carcanet Press in April, 2019.

Moya Cannon is an Irish poet with six published collections. The mountains, the sea and our primal and enduring responses to the beauty of the endangered earth are the inspiration for many of her poems. Archaeology and geology figure as gateways to deeper understanding of our mysterious relationship with the natural world and our past. Her new collection Donegal Tarantella is published this month. 

Tickets are 10 euro - buy them from the festival website.
