On the On August 30th we gathered together again in The Spailpín Fánach to remember Eoin and to celebrate this years Scholar and highly commended Poets, and those from previous years.
It was really lovely meet Freya and Otto in person, both of whom gave beautiful readings of their recent work.
We were also delighted to be joined by previous scholars, Aoife Osborne, who performed some of her new work, and Alana Daly Mulligan, who treated us to a screening of their short film Homofónia.
As always, Eoin's friends treated us to a great night of music, with performances from (in no particular order!) M'Adam, Rob Carlile, John Treacy, Sadhbh Moriarty, Aengus Mac a Bháird, Annie Bloch, Lauren Cahalane, Muireann Joyce-Hearn, Katie O' Neill, Nikki Burke, Eamonn Mulholland, The Duffys, Jack Hickey, Sound Addiction and Mark Leonard.
A special thanks to Tom Duffy for doing the sound on the night and Danilo Milk for doing a live stream - a first for the Tribute Night and a huge benefit for those who couldn't make it, but wanted to take part in some way.
Thanks as always for all of the love and support and it is so encouraging to see the community of poets grow every year.
