Thurs­day Jan­uary31st at 7 p.m. – Po­etry read­ing with Joe Neal. Award-win­ning ac­tor and poet Joe Neal will share his ‘ tuned thoughts’ on the night. He says of writ­ing po­etry: ‘Putting a poem to­gether is a very strange ex­er­cise of thought: an idea drifts into the mind and grabs your at­ten­tion. It chases af­ter words, set­ting them into a kind of melody. I would call this ‘ tuned thoughts’ – and that may be a good def­i­ni­tion of a poem.’ Joe, who lives near Castle­bridge, will be in­tro­duc­ing poems from his newly pub­lished sixth col­lec­tion – Ros­setti’s Wom­bat. He re­cently re­turned from an arts coun­cil bur­sary tour of New Eng­land and last year won the An­thony Cronin In­ter­na­tional Po­etry Award for his poem Al­legheny Man which, he says, was prompted by a visit to the Al­legheny Moun­tains in West Vir­ginia where he dis­cov­ered a ru­ined cabin and tried to imag­ine the life of the per­son who once lived there. Book­ing es­sen­tial.
