Jackie Kay and Paula Meehan in conversation with Doireann Ní Bhriain

in association with Poetry Ireland

Fiere is the title of one of Jackie Kay's many collections and in Scots Gaelic it means equal or friend. In Irish the word "fior" means true.
 
We are thrilled to bring together two of the truest, most engaging and humane voices in poetry, Scottish Makar Jackie Kay and our own Paula Meehan, for a very special joint event in which they will discuss the connections made by and value of poetry in all of our lives.
 
Jackie will read poems from her collections including the recent Bantam, The Adoption Papers, OffColour, and Fiere. Paula will read from Geomantic, and Mysteries of the Home as well as dipping into her selection of 10 Poems for Ireland.
