Patrick Kavanagh Weekend 2022
September 30, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - October 2, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
The Patrick Kavanagh Centre in association with the Patrick Kavanagh Society are delighted to announce author John Connell will deliver this year’s keynote address, Friday 30th September at the newly refurbished Patrick Kavanagh Centre, Inniskeen. John’s talk will be followed by an interview with Irish Times journalist Frank McNally and an audience Q&A.
The Patrick Kavanagh keynote address is one of the highlights of our year and John follows in the footsteps of Seamus Heaney, President Michael D Higgins, Kavanagh’s biographer Antoinette Quinn and esteemed fellow guest Frank McNally amongst others.
Later in the evening, the recipient of the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award for 2022 will be announced. Since its inception in 1971 the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award has been a crucial milestone for emerging Irish poets on their journey towards recognition and publication. We are delighted to continue this tradition of support. The winner will be introduced by adjudicator & poet Noel Monahan.
Music will also be performed and the evening will be preceded by a reception in the centre at 7.30pm.
