Walking Tour

25 April 2024 at 1pm

The James Joyce Centre and Poetry Ireland/Éigse Éireann hosted a lunchtime ‘poetry promenade’ on Thursday, 25 April 2024 for Poetry Day Ireland 2024. We celebrate the extraordinary creativity of the poets who lived, worked and studied in the Georgian Streets of Dublin’s North Inner. Starting at the James Joyce Centre, our guide Darina Gallagher along with Sam Ford, Sinead Murphy, David Nash, and Enda Wyley performed a selection of poetry at different stops along the short route. We heard the poets of North Great George’s Street such as Samuel Ferguson, and Olivia Owenson, Belvedere College students such as James Joyce, Donagh McDonagh, and Austin Clarke, and the new poetry of contemporary poets at the Poetry Ireland House on Parnell Square.
