We celebrated the 12 days of Christmas this year with twelve days of poems. Roscommon poet Jane Clarke invited a host of irish poets to share with you one of their favourite Christmas poems, along with a poem from one of their own collections each day this festive season. Recitals were streamed daily, from Christmas Day at 7pm nightly on Roscommon Arts Centre’s Facebook Page, link here: https://www.facebook.com/RosArtsCentre

Participating poets included: Paula Meehan, Aifric Mac Aodha, Ciarán O’Rourke, Mary Noonan, Roscommon’s Jane Clarke, Jessamine O’Connor and Gerry Boland, Julie Morrissey, Paul Perry, Chandrika Narayanam Mohan, Elaine Feeney and Gerard Beirne.
