Words By Water – Kinsale Literary Festival
Now that it is once again possible to meet and share communal experiences, we are delighted to announce plans for a very special evening in Kinsale in early October.
‘Everything is going to be All Right’ by the wonderful Derek Mahon was widely shared during those dark and sometimes scary months.
“Derek passed away in October and was rightly lauded as ‘one of the great poets of his native Ireland and of the English-speaking world’,” Festival chairperson Ruth McDonnell says.
“Now finally, one year on from his sad passing, we have the opportunity to mourn his loss and celebrate his great talent in the town he called home for so many years.”
A celebration of Derek Mahon will take place in the Trident Hotel on Saturday October 2nd.
The evening of poetry and song will feature John Spillane, David Peare, Alannah Hopkin, Matthew Geden, Gerry Wrixon, Katherine Boucher Beug and Joachim Beug.
