Dr John Cooper Clarke – The Luckiest Guy Alive Tour

Vicar Street, Tuesday 19th March 2019

Dr John Cooper Clarke's The Luckiest Guy Alive is the latest collection from the original ‘people's poet’. From the Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman, to a hymn to the seductive properties of the pie – by way of hand-grenade haikus, machine-gun ballads and a meditation on the loss of Bono's leather pants – The Luckiest Guy Alive collects audience favourites and brand-new poems to show JCC as relevant and vibrant as ever.

Aside from his trademark ‘look' continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on the UK national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge with The Arctic Monkeys putting I Wanna Be Yours to music on their acclaimed A:M album.

“The godfather of British performance poetry” – Daily Telegraph.

Dublin: One City, One Book

Dublin

Dublin: One City, One Book is an award-winning Dublin City Council initiative, led by Dublin City Public Libraries, which encourages everyone to read a book connected with the capital city during the month of April every year. The One City, One Book choice for 2019 is The Country Girls Trilogy by Edna O'Brien. When The Country Girls, Edna O'Brien's first novel, appeared in 1960, it predated and anticipated the feminist revolution. It stood out and stood alone, upturning every category. There was little to compare with it. The Country Girls grew over time to what we now know as The C
