The Morrissy dynasty

image001

My niece and I – cue royal plural tone – will be reading together for the first time at an event organised by Poetry Ireland in Dublin on May 17.   Julie is a poet, whose first book, I am Where has just come out with Eyewear Publishing, and has been shortlisted for a Saboteur Award.  (Not too late to vote, by the way!) We’re reading together as part of The Next Generation, an event jointly organised by the Bealtaine Festival and Poetry Ireland.  We’ll be reading with another cross-generation poetic family – Enda Wyley and her nephew, Ciaran O Rourke.(I’ll be outnumbered by poetic types at this gig, reduced to reading mere fiction from my latest collection, Prosperity Drive.)  Ciaran featured along with Julie in Poetry Ireland Review Issue 118: The Rising Generation.

  • Tuesday 17 May, 6.30pm
  • Books Upstairs, D’Olier St, Dublin
  • Tickets: €6/€5
