03 An Evening with Paul Muldoon

The Event

As part of the West Cork Literary Festival, held at The Maritime Hotel in Bantry in County Cork, there was An Evening with Paul Muldoon.  He was introduced by Chris Agee, editor of The Irish Pages, and a significant poet in his own right.

Now, I am not an expert on poetry, far from it, but there were times during this evening when I forgot where I was and what I was supposed to be doing - I committed the gravest of all sins, I became part of the audience!  Paul read from his very diverse collection of poems, he read the mood of the audience beautifully and paced the content to give us an entertaining evening.  Hope you enjoy the video.
