Clare Poets Gather at Glór

The first monthly gathering of the Clare  Three-Legged Stool poetry group met at the Glor arts centre in Ennis . You can hear the chairman talk about the group in Audioboo below. I went along and enjoyed the many different voices reading from their work. Guest poet, Mike Douse was a wonderful reader of his own work.  He opened with a set of poems in a style of iconic poets including Kipling, Yeats and Shakespeare. Peter Kay played musical interludes on keyboard and there were a variety of voices heard at the open mike section. I met artist Francis Bailey who tells me that she is working on some large canvases for a forthcoming exhibition in a Limerick cathedral.

Here is a link to a report of the proceedings on the group's own site
