In collaboration with the Leitrim Local Studies, two Poetry as Commemoration workshops led by poet Mary Melvin Geoghegan will take place on

Thursday 27 October from 11am -1pm


Thursday 2 November from 11am -1pm

Under the guidance of poet Mary Melvin Geoghegan and  Local Studies Librarian Mary Conefrey, participants will respond to items selected from Leitrim Local Studies collection that relate to the War of Independence & the Civil War. Afterwards they will be invited to submit their writing to a special Poetry as Commemoration archive which will be housed in UCD Special Collections. Participants who have family stories or materials relating to the revolutionary period are invited to share these, but no family connection is necessary and all are welcome.

Please note that workshops take place across two days and participants should attend both workshops. One ticket allows access to both workshops.

*All registered participants will be booked in to both workshops *
