Write By The Sea at Kilmore Quay

By Dan Walsh

The five-day Write By The Sea literary festival was opened this evening in Kilmore Quay by the Chairman of the Arts Council of Ireland, Kevin Rafter.

It is a virtual event this year again due to the Covid-19 pandemic because it had to be organised and finalised many months ago, but the organisers are delighted with the line-up of contributors and the event brings an autumnal atmosphere to the seaside village.

There is a series of workshops, readings, panel discussions daily and many recognised figures in the literary world are featured including Douglas Kennedy, Carmel Harrington, Fiona Ennis, Niall Ó Muirí, Paula Lowney, Mike Hanrahan, Jackie Hayden, Celestine Murphy, Tom Mooney, Peter Murphy and Colm Toibín.

The festival runs until Sunday and an online events programme is available. Booking and more information; writebythesea.ie
