Sport is arguably the single greatest communal activity in which people and communities engage and participate. ‘Everything to Play For’ is a poetry anthology published by Poetry Ireland and edited by John McAuliffe, that through the words of our best loved poets, celebrates sport. For this special event as part of Listowel Writers’ Week, John McAuliffe will chair a discussion with Ireland’s first woman Olympian, Maeve Kyle, Munster and Ireland rugby hero and sporting commentator, Tony Ward, and broadcaster Micheal O Muircheartaigh. Poets Enda Wyley and Elaine Feeney, as well as musician Luka Bloom will also join this group to discuss their motivations, their favourite writing and in particular poems from the collection. This event is presented in association with Listowel Writer\'s Week and Poetry Ireland. Tickets: €15/12. Booking via Listowel Writer’s Week www.writersweek.ie In association with Poetry Ireland and Listowel Writers Week.
