Sligo Library were delighted to be a part of Poetry Day Ireland while #stayinghome and #stayingsafe. We featured a number of writers, performers and poetry lovers on our Facebook page throughout the day, reading a favourite piece of poetry.
Guests include, Louise Kennedy, Alice Lyons, Fionn and Oisín McNasser, John Carty and Una Mannion. We had some beautiful words by poets such as, Dermot Healy, Roger McGough, Langston Hughes, Sinéas Morrissey, Ciaran Carson and Una Mannion.
The spread of coronavirus is a new and challenging event. Some people might find it more worrying than others. You may notice, amongst others, some of the following:
- increased anxiety
- feeling stressed
- feeling insecure or unsettled
We hope these little poetry snippets go some way to helping you during these times.
