The Poetry Line

Date: 19-05-2021

Do you know someone who would benefit from a chat on the phone with a poet?

For our Free Poetry Line Event, Mayo Arts Service are stepping away from online and reverting back to the phone.

Poet Terry McDonagh will be operating the Poetry Line on the mornings of the 26, 27 and 28 May. If you would like to chat to Terry about poetry, why not book a phone call. This event is aimed at those living in Mayo with particular emphasis on those who may be socially isolated.

Mayo County Council Arts Service will send you some of Terry’s poetry beforehand so you can have a read of them in your own time. Why not grab a cuppa and have a poetry chat with Terry.

Poet and dramatist, Terry McDonagh, taught creative writing at Hamburg University and takes part in literary events worldwide. He has published eleven poetry collections.

To book a place please contact Mayo Arts Service on 094 90 64367 or e-mail There are limited spaces available, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

We have 4 thirty - minute slots available on each date.
