All Ireland Poetry Day in Charlie’s Bar

It’s been a busy and fun week. Thursday was All Ireland Poetry Day and our writers’ group, Fermanagh Writers, celebrated the day with Irish writer and poet, Seamas Mac Annaidh. We’ve done our share poetry readings in strange places – gale buffeted ruined castles and muzac filled shopping centres so we relished our spot by the fire in Charlie’s Bar, Enniskillen this year. It was our first livestream broadcast and that was an interesting experience. Once we got the glitches sorted out we were flying.

I chose my poem Barbed Boundary which was included in the Babble Festival’s journal this summer as well as The Thing on a String, a funny ditty I’ve written for the group’s next anthology. The anthology is a collection of animal tales in support of Bright Eyes Animal Sanctuary.
