Fingal Poetry Festival

Online and Various Locations, Thursday 16th September - Sunday 19th September

The Fingal Poetry Festival is now in its second year and continuing to grow.

From our base at Skerries Mills, within easy reach of Dublin, we aim to engage with the broader community of Fingal in order to present the very best poetry to the widest possible audience. No poet ever arrives fully formed, and our remit is that poets at every stage of development — from the peer–lead, creative writing groups where so many hone their craft, to the emerging talents and interesting voices out there waiting to be heard, right through to the leading contemporary exponents of the art — should and will be represented at the festival. Our mission is community and cultural engagement, inclusivity, equality, diversity and openness. We endeavour to make poetry accessible to anyone and everyone, and our partner in this will always be music, close cousin to rhyme and metre. We have worked hard within the current restrictions in order to bring you this year’s events and very much hope to see you in Skerries!

Poetry will be ever present in the town in the run-up to the Festival and of course during the Festival weekend: expect poetry in shop windows, on benches along our scenic seaside and on footpaths. We look forward to a colourful illumination and projection of poetry in Floraville, our lovely town centre park beside Skerries Library. All in all we are aiming to create a colourful, lively festival atmosphere in the town. Be prepared to be surprised!
