All Hail the Birthday Boy!

Yeats on the gable wall. Sligo, August 2014

It simply would not do to let tomorrow’s 150th anniversary of Yeats’s birthday go by and not post something.

All going to plan, I will be in Sligo – Yeats central – for the #Yeats2015 festivities. I plan on dropping into Drumcliffe to pay my respects. Me and the multitude, no doubt.

This time tomorrow, I’ll be getting ready to go to this. So many poets! It promises to be something special.

I’m also looking forward to the launch of this year’s Yeats International Summer School which is taking place during the first two weeks of August. Straight after that, it’s a quick run down Wine Street (that is its name!) to hear Prof Margaret Mills Harper speak about ‘Yeats and the Power of the Imagination’.

Here is a link to a post and a podcast of a programme I made with fellow students at Wild Atlantic Waves Radio. Give it a RT on d’aul Twitter machine and a LIKE on Facebook, would you?

More when I return from Sligo.

Happy Birthday, dear WB.
