Our inaugural weekend featuring George Moore was a great success!
Our next holidays will feature W. B. Yeats.
On Friday night there will be a talk about the life and times of Yeats, referring to his early Sligo poems as well as his influential later poems. Participants will be encouraged to read their favourite Yeats poem. A general familiarity with Yeats poetry would help participants but is not essential.
Saturday morning depart for Sligo and a tour of Yeats Country, taking in Lissadell House, where the Gore - Booths lived and Yeats was a visitor. Drumcliffe the Hazel Wood and Dooney Rock will also feature on the tour.
