Our Poem of the Week, presented in association with the Poetry Programme, is Bread by Moya Cannon.
This Poetry Programme video, funded by RTÉ Radio 1 and the Office of Public Works, and made in association with Poetry Ireland, of Moya Cannon reading her poem, was filmed in the grounds of Glebe House and Gallery, Co Donegal, which are operated and managed by the OPW. The house and gardens were donated to the Nation in 1981 by the artist Derek Hill.
Moya Cannon’s poetry is published by Carcanet.
On 11 July 2018 Moya, along with fellow Donegal poet Annemarie Ní Churreáin, and musicians Kevin Doherty and Michael Keeney, joined Olivia O’Leary for a Heart of Summer event at Glebe House, one of a series of three events produced by Poetry Ireland in association with the OPW.
A recording of the evening’s live performance will be broadcast on the Poetry Programme when the series returns to RTÉ Radio 1 in September.
