Donegal launch of Collected Poems by Francis Harvey

There was a wonderful turnout on a wet and windy evening for the May 18th launch of Francis Harvey's Collected Poems in Donegal Town. Donegal Arts Officer Traolach O Fionnáin spoke warmly of Harvey's work and was equally warm in his welcoming of Dedalus to Donegal. The capacity crowd, and an excellent, relaxed reading by Harvey made for a wonderful night, despite the weather.

The Dedalus Press gratefully acknowledges the support of Donegal County Council Cultural Services in the organisation of what was a fitting celebration of the work of Francis Harvey and of the power and importance of poetry in general.
