The 21st Strokestown Poetry Festival launches at 7pm, on Thursday April 18th 2019, in Poetry Ireland (Dublin) with an eclectic mix of new and established poets reading their work ahead of the festival (2nd May until 6th May).
The launch evening will also include the reveal of this year’s Festival Anthology featuring poems shortlisted for festival competitions and from invited guests.
Beautiful and historic Strokestown, a focal point of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands, is perfectly situated halfway across Ireland:
* approximately 90 minutes from the hustle & bustle of Dublin (and Ireland's Ancient East) and Galway (on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way).
* just 40 minutes from Ireland West Airport in Knock.
