5 Minutes Of Fame at Boyle Arts Festival

Every small town needs an annual event to showcase the arts of local talent. To generate wider interest then the small town also invites and books popular 'celebrities' which are also an inspiration to local artists.

Boyle, Co. Roscommon does this well with their annual festival of Arts that include exhibitions of paintings, photographs, sculptures and crafts along with the performing arts of music, songs, drama, dance, comedy, storytelling and poetry among others.

On the last day of the festival, Saturday 2nd August, 2015 it was the turn of the lovely Moylurg Writers to do their 'thing'.

I had the honour of being the opening poet and allowed 5 minutes to do my thing :-)


I performed Coll The Hazel, then 5 more wonderful Moylurgs did their thing.
Stunning appreciative audience. Some say 100 people were there, but I think it was more like 50.

The venue was The Auditorium at King House, a lovely room for this work.
