POETRY READING with Matthew Sweeney and Mary Noonan 'Dancing with Horses'

DETAILS

We're delighted to welcome two wonderful poets frm Ireland. Matthew Sweeney has long been praised as one of the most daring and original poets around.  Over the course of ten collections he has demonstrated a remarkable ability to make the ordinary extraordinary and take the extraordinary somewhere else entirely.  His last collection, Horse Music, (2013), won the inaugural Piggott Poetry Prize, and his next, Inquisition Lane, will be published by Bloodaxe later this year. 

Mary Noonan's first collection, The Fado House, was published by Dedalus Press in 2012, and was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Centre Prize and the Strong/Shine Award. The poems are 'musical and wide-ranging, and the dominant tones are those of wonder and celebration'.  In 2014, she was awarded an Arts Council of Ireland Literature Bursary.  Mary lectures in French Literature at Univeristy College cork.
