Kavanagh Day and Documentary

KAVANAGH DAY was inaugurated in 2004 to allow readings of Patrick Kavanagh's writings by waterways in counties around Ireland in mid-July. Ger Considine is a Kavanagh enthusiast and wishes to celebrate his poetry and prose by staging this event in Galway in July this year. Recited Kavanagh poems will be accompanied by a local musician on fiddle or melodeon playing mostly Moor’s / Carolon Irish melodies. For details contact Ger Considine on (086) 873837 or e-mail

Interested groups are invited to the event and a selection of these attendees will read their favorite Kavanagh poem.

Ger Considine’s documentary on Kavanagh’s girlfriend Deirdre Manifold- Deirdre's Passions is also showing in the Way Out West slot in the Galway Film Fleadh on Thursday, July 9th from 10pm at the Town Hall Theatre.
