Michael Durack- The Spoken Word -Zoom Event
May 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Michael Durack’s poems cover a variety of themes including growing up, childhood memories, rural traditions, vanished landscapes, sport and music, love and loss, and the craft of writing. They are written in diverse styles, formal and informal, and range from the deadly serious to the absurdly comic. Many are set in his native place, Birdhill in the parish of Newport, and in the twin Shannonside settlements of Ballina-Killaloe where he has lived since 1974.
