Poetry Ireland: Adventurous plans need extraordinary supporters
Tuesday, 19 December 2017 /
As many of our readers will know, Poetry Ireland has undertaken to establish a vibrant all-island venue and resource centre dedicated to celebrating, supporting and promoting poetry, poets and writers at No. 11 Parnell Square, in the heart of Dublin 1. >> Read about our plansWe have just launched a range of support opportunities for anyone wishing to play a part in helping us to bring this extraordinary transformation to life.
Or you may also wish to consider our Poetry Patronmembership programme, which provides an unrivalled opportunity to stay close to Irish poetry, while underpinning and supporting our work. We’re also offering our very first Poetry Patrons an extra special welcome gift – a copy of All Through the Nightsigned by Marie Heaney.
Stay close to Irish poetry with access to exclusive events, advance booking and discounts, subscriptions to publications and limited-edition gifts. As a Poetry Patron, your annual membership will support our mission to connect poetry and people. Packages start from €80 and would make a fantastic Christmas gift for poetry lovers.
To celebrate the launch of the programme, we’re offering an extra, very special gift until Tuesday 20 December: anyone purchasing a Poetry Patron membership, at any level, will receive a complimentary copy of All Through the Night, signed by Marie Heaney.
Find out more about our plans to establish the Poetry Ireland Centre: journalist Olivia O’Leary, commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, comedian Dara Ó Briain, actor Aidan Gillen, poets Paula Meehan and Paul Muldoon, Marie Heaney and the people behind the project tell us why they think Ireland needs a home for poetry.
Thank you to our Supporters & Partners
As 2017 draws to a close, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of our funders, donors and partners for their on-going generous support and commitment to our work.
