Love Poems in a Dublin Church

Poetry Ireland, Imram and Cois Life present
A special reading of love poetry in Irish on Valentine's Day:

Saturday 14 February @ 10.45am
Whitefriar St Carmelite Church, 56 Aungier St, D2

This sounds lovely, but I will be hotel-bound with my beloved elsewhere... I wouldn't mind only we got engaged in that church, beside the tomb of Saint Valentine, so we belong there. Still, I'm happier not to be travelling too far for a relaxing day of shopping, eating and whatever else!

Filíocht le Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Liam Ó Muirthile, agus Colm Breathnach. Amhránaíocht ar an sean-nós le Lorcán Mac Mathúna. Beidh na filí ag léamh rogha dánta ón leabhar Filíocht Ghrá na Gaeilge, curtha in eagar ag Ciarán Mac Murchaidh, agus foilsithe ag Cois Life.

Poetry read by Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Liam Ó Muirthile and Colm Breathnach. With traditional love songs in Irish sung by Lorcán Mac Mathúna. The poems and songs that will be performed come from the recently published anthology Filíocht Ghrá na Gaeilge/Love Poems in Irish, edited by Ciarán Mac Murchaidh and published by Cois Life.

Reading begins at 10.45am, just prior to 11.00am mass, with additional poems and songs performed during and after mass.

Nuala, that sounds lovely - it's so good to see how poetry has become more and more a part of everyday life in Ireland.
A cool coincidence about the church too : )
