The Bee-Loud Glade

Crazy Dog Audio Theatre, in partnership with Dedalus Press, presents A  Living Anthology of 8 Contemporary Irish Poems performed to music & sound, in a special one-off workshop/showcase performance.

McAuley and Mary O’Donoghue. The performance by the company which last year had a widely acclaimed hit with their interpretation of the poetry of Gerry Murphy, is being recorded in sound and on video for subsequent airplay and is expected to form the basis for a new show currently in development.

Enda Coyle-Greene reads at Ó Bhéal, Cork

Dedalus Press poet Enda Coyle-Greene (Snow Negatives, 2007) reads at the popular Cork gathering Ó Bhéal on Monday November 16. 

“This is a remarkable collection, assured, measured and adult—poems of loss and consideration, poems that look on the world with a cool, clear eye … This is poetry that is strong, sure, and totally trustworthy … This is poetry of earned authority.”—from the Judges’ Citation, Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award 2006
