GALWAY: Poems For Patience

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009, 11am
University Hospital,

Poems for Patience, selected and introduced by Philip Schultz.
The Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust continues the very successful Poems for Patience series. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Philip Schultz has selected 21 poems from a wide range of poets, which will be displayed throughout the waiting areas in University Hospital, Galway and Merlin Park University Hospital.

The Cat’s Cradle, organised by Kevin Higgins.
Volume 4 of The Cat’s Cradle comes to life under the organisation of Kevin Higgins, Merlin Park University Hospital Writer in Residence. Using reminiscence techniques, Kevin has compiled stories by patients at Units Five and Six of Merlin Park Hospital. The theme of The Cat’s Cradle this year is ‘Hard Times Come Again’. Patients talk about their memories of hard times past – everything from straw mattresses to World War II – and offer Brian Cowen some advice.

Both events will be launched at University Hospital, Galway at 11am on Wednesday 22nd April.
