“In its six years, Live Encounters has never been mainstream. It has been political, social, a little economic and always critical and left of centre. This time, it’s delving into the rarefied world of poetry which might seem a little strange at first, but, on second thoughts, it makes sense. The Irish poet, Patrick Kavanagh said, Poetry made me a sort of outcast and I became abnormally normal. Live Encounters is abnormally normal – it deals with issues that really matter – with people who look to mystery and strange words beyond the everyday for guidance. Michael Longley said, if I knew where poetry came from, I’d go there.” Terry McDonagh, Celebrated Irish Poet, Playwright and Writer.
