Hear stories about some of Ireland’s most renowned poets and the poems they wrote that captured the hearts of their nation and the world.
When people think of Ireland, they often think of the beautiful scenery, the lively pubs, and the years of conflict. But Ireland is also known for its writers and poets. It has been said that the Irish could blister your skin with their words alone. Such was the power of the poets in ancient Ireland. And their magical way with words has echoed through the generations up through modern times.
Come to the Irish Cultural Center on 623 Columbia Street, Utica on April 13th at 7 PM to hear Sue Romero tell the stories about some of Ireland’s most renowned poets and the poems they wrote that captured the hearts of their nation and the world. After the program, stop in to the 5 Points Pub to see if you can locate the photos on the walls of these great Irish poets: Patrick Kavanaugh, Brendan Behan, William Butler Yeats, Seamus Heaney, and Samuel Beckett.
This event, which will be held in the H.A.R.P. Museum, is free; however, you are asked to register via this program’s Eventbrite link (here).
