Reading at Clare Intercultural Festival

It was a beautiful afternoon on Saturday last (21 July) for the annual Clare Intercultural Festival which was held in the grounds of St. Flannan’s in Ennis.

There was an eclectic mix of singing and dancing by Clare residents from such varied places as Nigeria, and Chile – to name the two I had the pleasure to be at.

There was also a 15 minute poetry reading by members of Clare Three-Legged Stool Poets:

  • Mike Douse
  • Patrick Stack
  • Mary Ellen Fean
  • Fred Johnston

A member of the group, Martin Vernon, was MC for the day.

The Clare Three-Legged Stool Poets group are looking forward to giving a more substantial contribution at next year’s event.
