Join Me At The Cuisle International Poetry Festival

I am pleased to announce that I will be kicking off this year's Cuisle International Poetry Festival with a lunch-time reading in the Captain's Room of the Hunt Museum. This is a brilliant setting in an award-winning museum. I am sure if you're a native of Limerick you've enjoyed the eclectic collection before now. You'll need no further urging to join me in this lovely room, Wednesday 12 October 2011 at 1pm.

On the occasion I'll be launching my book Tragedy of the Sun and Stars. Those present will have the first chance to purchase the limited edition. I'll be writing more about that book anon.

"Apophenic Ecosystem C10 C30" at TACTIC, Cork

"The Uncanny is a Freudian concept of an instance where something can be familiar, yet foreign at the same time, resulting in a feeling of it being uncomfortably strange or uncomfortably familiar."

Liam Slevin has curated an exhibition of sound and video works based on this theme, opening Wednesday 14 September at 7pm. Exhibiting artists include Dominic Thorpe, Stephen McGlynn, Erin Gee, Jessica Conway, Dave Fyans, Sarah Lundy, Richard Forrest and Dan Guiney. I am happy I was asked to take part and will make it "down south" for the opening.
