As Cruinniú na nOg is always held around the same time as Yeats Day (13th June) we ensure that we also celebrate our world renowned poet. William and his famous artist brother Jack lived in Sligo as children in the 19th century. They loved to hear stories about smugglers and pirates and Jack used to draw his own pirate maps. William became the famous poet WB Yeats, and is buried at Drumcliffe Churchyard. In respect to them & in association with Yeats Society Sligo, we have created our own Sligo coast map called ‘Sligoe Cove’. We just ask you all to download and colour in the Pirate Map, put down your name, age and school and submit it to us using the online form, below.
