White House Poetry Revival, Limerick

White House Poetry Revival

Wednesday 10th May 2006 at 9.00pm.

"They said it wouldn't last" were the words of local personality Barney Sheehan and the man responsible for the revival of poetry readings at the famous old world White House Bar on O'Connell Street, Limerick. Single handedly he has done what the doubters said could not be done and that is provide a platform and outlet for poets in Limerick to perform their work. Now over two years down the road the event has gone from strength to strength and is now the focal point for poetry in Limerick.

Karyna is a former member and coach of five National Poetry Slam teams from Austin and Seattle.
