The Full Convention
It has been 40 years since Tom McCarthy's first collection The Last Convention was published by Carcanet. He says that it seems like yesterday. So we're bringing Tom together with one of our most respected and radical poets, Mary O'Malley, the “deeply romantic” vision of Leanne O'Sullivan and acclaimed uileann piper David Power.
The Full Convention will illuminate what Tom describes as the “condition of poetry, a permanent and universal condition, one of those whole–person to whole–person encounters that keep us human eternally”. Hosted by poet and broadcaster, Vincent Woods.
