NB: Event now fully booked.
We are delighted to partner with Irish Rail to offer a special Poetry Train from Dublin Connolly to Sligo on Yeats Day.
The 11:05hrs service from Connolly to Sligo will have a dedicated poetry carriage on Saturday 13th June.
Theo Dorgan will be the host on the poetry carriage inviting people to recite their favourite Yeats poem to mark the occasion.
Other passengers on this special WB Yeats inspired trip include the Chair of Irish Poetry, Paula Meehan, English Poet Laureate and Dame Carol Ann Duffy.
Yeats’s poetry will also be displayed on DART carriages from this weekend for commuters to enjoy.
If you do make the train, make sure to post your photos using the #Yeats2015 hashtag.
