Festival of The Fires - Poetry Divas Reading

Yes, the fabulous Poetry Diva Collective will be appearing at The Festival of The Fires

When: Saturday 1st May 2010 around 7pm on the Button Factory Cabaret Stage

Where: The Hill of Uisneach is located approx 5 miles outside the village of Ballymore. That's near Mullingar in Westmeath.

It's all about lighting bonfires for Bealtaine, the summertime festival. Festival of the Fires is a ceremonial and cultural experience aimed at enriching the mind and increasing the knowledge and appreciation of our history and our sacred sites. The lighting of the fires will be at the heart of the rekindled festival, but the body and soul of it will be a widespread array of cultural, artistic and historic events and entertainment taking place.

It promises to be an event unlike anything ever witnessed in modern times - an iconic national celebration to truly ignite the summer.

So why not come along and light some fire?

We have 'May bush burning day' here that has transmogrified over the years into ' Lumpy floral pattern sofa and any old shite piled up since last (previously known as) 'May bush day' that normally you would get fined for burning, day'
