Poet Egan of the Meelaghans

This year Poet Egan will be commemorated with a publication of 50 of his selected poems, led by Offaly Historical Society. This is the continuation of this work to remember and mark this local poet from the turn of the last century.

Previously Poet Egan has been commemorated through the Creative Ireland programme with the Geashill National School poetry workshops leading to the production of a broadsheet with poet John Cummins and with the hand carved limestone paving stone in Geashill carved by Ciaran Byrne.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
