Poetry Evening with Terry McDonnagh @KStPatricksDay

As part of the St Patrick’s Day Festivities in Kiltimagh, we participated in a lovely evening of poetry and song with our friends from St Aidan’s NS.

The event was hosted and facilitated by local poet, Terry McDonnagh.

In the weeks leading up to this evening, Terry visited the school a number of times and conducted poetry workshops. Using the theme “Journeys” the children explored the life of RaifteirĂ­ through poem and song.

The children composed their own works, some of which were performed on the evening.

Thanks to Terry, Poetry Ireland and the Tourism Association in Kiltimagh.
