I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

Thomas McCarthy & Mary O'Malley at Mountains to Sea Festival

Wednesday 21 Mar 2018, 18:30 to 20:00

Pavilion Theatre
Marine Road
Dún Laoghaire


It has been 40 years since Tom McCarthy's first collection The First Convention was published by Carcanet. He says that it seems like yesterday. So we're bringing Tom together with one of our most respected and radical poets, Mary O'Malley, the '€œdeeply romantic' vision of Leanne O'Sullivan and acclaimed uileann piper David Power. The Full Convention will illuminate what Tom describes as the '€œcondition of poetry, a permanent and universal condition, one of those whole-€“person to whole-€“person encounters that keep us human eternally'€. Hosted by poet and broadcaster, Vincent Woods.
