Pavilion Theatre presents

A Celebration of the Poetry of Eavan Boland

I Am Your Citizen


"This harbour was made by art and force.
And called Kingstown and afterwards Dún Laoghaire."

      - The Harbour, Eavan Boland

Join us to celebrate the life of the poet Eavan Boland (1944-2020), one of Ireland's most prominent poets. Boland's work has touched generations of readers, writers and poets, both in Ireland and internationally.

Host Jessica Traynor, guests Gerald Dawe, Olivia O'Leary, Elaine Feeney, Nessa O'Mahony, Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan and John O'Donnell, with music from Lisa Lambe and Cormac de Barra, will read from some favourite works of Eavan Boland's, discuss her legacy, and celebrate, in words and in music, a poet whose spirit is still very much with us.
