Irish Poets

"Irish Poetry? Totally sexy!"


I think that it is pretty cool that Irish poets will be riding the Celtic Tiger all the way to UC Berkeley next month. It's rare to get Irish poets all the way on this far-flung coast, and that's unfortunate because there is something endearing and provoking about the way the Irish do poetry. I had an Irish roommate in Germany who wrote poetry, and I really liked his stuff. These poets quite good, too. Just one more thing to look forward to next month.

Trevor Joyce and Fergal Gaynor will be reading on October 10.

Cathal Ó Searcaigh will be reading on Ocober 11.

Both readings will be at 7:00 PM in the Maude Fife room, 315 Wheeler, and free as air. C'mon Cohagen, give dese people AIR!!!

It seems like October is turning into an unofficial poetry month. The new April. A great deal going on.

Maybe you should have picked a red-haired model with freckles to celebrate Irish poetry.

I was thinking Black Irish on that one, actually. Funny little racist.
