All Ireland Poetry Day

Thursday October 4th 2012 was designated National Poetry Day by Poetry Ireland. It is the one day of the year when poetry and literature lovers throughout the country celebrate that art form for which we as a nation, are rightly famous, all over the world – poetry. The night saw an extravaganza of poetry and music in The Canal Studio Backstage Theatre Longford.  The lead poet on the night was the celebrated and ever popular Granard poet Noel Monaghan.  Noel read from some of his latest work as well as some of his more popular pieces from earlier collections.
