THE FORGE AT GORT LITERARY FESTIVAL kicks off this time round on Friday, March 29th, with a reception in the Gallery Café, Gort, Co Galway at 5. 30pm. All welcome.

This year’s line-up features Dublin-based poet and playwright, Gerry McDonnell, poet Nessa O’Mahoney, The Clare Three-Leggéd Stool Poets Group, UK author Chris Keil, a talk on George Moore courtesy of Coole Park (2pm, Gort Library) poet Knute Skinner, poet Mary Ellen Fean, and, we are delighted to say, poetry, film and music with writer Jackie Queally, who will explore the interactions of space and natural water sources, and violinist Peter Aranos, in ‘Water and Place.’

“We have had to fight Arts Council cuts this year,” said Fred Johnston, Director of the Western Writers’ Centre, (Ionad Scríbhneoirí Chaitlín Maide) Galway, who organise the festival in Gort. “But our growing festival audience over the past seven years has sustained us well.”
 ” We would like to thank our supporters and sponsors Poetry Ireland, Sen. Lorraine Higgins (Lab.), Scéal Eile Bookshop, Ennis, Patrick Hornig (USA,) Phil Mason, Sullivan’s Royal Hotel and everyone else who wished us well.”
