North Beach Poetry Nights returns on Monday 13th September at 9pm in The Crane Bar, Sea Road, Galway with Guest Poet: Miceál Kearney, young farmer, ecologist, animal-lover (well, not really kittens) poet and performer without equal, Miceál has won every slam award in Ireland, nearly!

His best-selling debut collection Inheritance, published by Doire Press, will be available for purchase on the night. (It has recently been confirmed that Miceál is no longer considered a threat to the safety of the nation.)

Also: The Connaught Heat of the All-Ireland Poetry Grand Slam will be held  to select the two winning poets who will travel to Dublin to this year's Grand Slam.
