Poetry Jukebox travels from Belfast to Dublin

It is great to see the Poetry Jukebox make its way from Belfast to University College Dublin.  It takes time, inspiration, planning, organisation, funding and creative thinking by individuals to make this happen.

As someone who writes poems it is so rewarding to have my work accepted for publication and to be able to highlight the work of other forgotten poets so that it can be shared with others.

Thank you most sincerely Maria McManus, Lucy Collins and Ursula Byrne, UCD for all your support for poets and poetry in Ireland.

Included are two recordings by myself - my own poem 'The Last Walk' and 'Whistler's White Girl' by Eleanor Rogers Cox. The Poetry Jukebox in Ireland is the work of Maria McManus.
