Eigse Michael Hartnett Literary Festival
26 April 2012 - 28 April 2012
A prestigious poetry, literary & arts festival where leading Irish and international poets, writers, thinkers, musicians, dancers, singers and storytellers all come together to celebrate Michael Hartnett, the poet and man. Éigse Michael Hartnett is County Limerick's prestigious poetry, literary & arts festival. Reflection and inspiration are the two words that best describe the festival. Leading Irish and international poets, writers and thinkers jostle with musicians, dancers, singers and storytellers, what Michael Hartnett termed 'the harp side of the Irish coin'. Events that are bound to enthuse, stimulate, inspire and occasionally bemuse, celebrate the literary and oral legacy of Michael Hartnett, the poet and man. Hosted throughout the town of Newcastle West, in the library, schools, the courthouse, church, hospital and pubs, the breadth of the festival creates an ambience of warmth and conviviality that lends itself to lively gatherings and easy conversation.
