An Evening with Paul Durcan

Poet Paul Durcan was born in Dublin in 1944. He is one of modern Ireland’s most distinctive poets, Paul Durcan is renowned as both an outspoken critic of his native country, and as a chronicler of its emergence from the repressions of the 1950s to the contradictions of the present day. “These poems are a pleasure to read. Paul Durcan speaks in poetry with a rare openness and no matter where the setting, New York or Paris, he always returns to Ireland. He makes particularly engaging poems out of passing con…versations -  “ You’re looking great – are you going to a wedding?”/ “Oh God no – I’m coming back from a wake.”
We are sure that this event will be really special and would encourage all those interested in poetry to attend.” Bookings for this event can be made at the Dunamaise Arts Centre Tel:  057 8663355. and more information from the Arts Office, Laois County Council T: 057 8664033/13 E:  W:
