The Poetry Programme, Sunday 20th October

In the Poetry Programme on 20th October 2019, Paula Meehan gives a mesmerizing performance at an event hosted by Olivia O'Leary and recorded before an audience in Donegal.

Paula Meehan and Olivia O'Leary

In July 2019, Paula Meehan, former Irish Professor of Poetry, was at Glebe House and Gallery in County Donegal to take part in the Heart of Summer series of events, organised in association with Poetry Ireland and the Office of Public Works. In this episode of the Poetry Programme, we bring you part of that evening’s performance. In a lively discussion, Paula speaks with Olivia O’Leary about her childhood, her education and her discovery of the classics, and reads a selection of poems old and new.

The Poetry Programme will bring you more interviews and readings from the Heart of Summer events later in the series.

The Poetry Programme is available to listen back to after broadcast on the RTÉ radio player.
