Collaborating again with the Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry Foundation, ten short films, performed by a cast of 11 actors, were curated by Colm Tóibín in order of the poets’ birth dates.

As with the first Coole Park poetry series in 2020, these ten new poetry films were shot by Matthew Thompson on location at Coole Park in County Galway, the home of Lady Gregory. The films were also screened as a free exhibition in The Mick Lally Theatre, 14-25 July 2021.

With thanks to our friends at the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Coole Park Nature Reserve. More info:
