Cuisle Limerick City International Poetry Festival

I've never been to Cuisle but it's got a great reputation (and I'm open to offers!).

Wednesday 15th – 18th October

2008 marks the twelfth Cuisle Festival in Limerick City, celebrating local, national and international excellence in poetry. The festival has poets from different countries visiting Limerick over 4 days - readings, book launches and workshops with the leading contemporary poets of our time.

Some of this years line up of poets include international visiting poets C.K. Williams (USA), Sudeep Sen (India), Iztok Osojnik (Slovenia), Farouk Giwaida (Egypt), Sasha Dugdale (UK), Bernadette Cremin (UK), Neil Rollinson (UK) Fiona Sampson (UK) and Irish poets of international importance include Thomas McCarthy, Vona Groarke, Macdara Woods, Pat Cotter, Áine Ní Ghlinn, Julie O’Callaghan, Ciaran O'Driscoll, Jo Slade and Deirdre Brennan.

This year’s Stony Thursday Book is a bumper edition with almost 100 poets between the covers.
There will be open mic at the White House Pub with a poetry slam on Saturday night
