Poetry Phone

Kilkenny County Council Arts Office initiated a poetry phone as part of our current Kilkenny community wellbeing initiative. Everyone is welcome to the poetry phone. 

As part of our yearly broadsheet publication we normally have a physical launch during Kilkenny Arts Festival. Due to Covid19 this was not possible this year.

We decided to record the published poems in Broadsheet 2020 and with a freefone number so everyone could listen to these poems. Dial 1800 272 994 to listen to one of the wondrous poems. We initially recorded poems from past publications and when the broadsheet is published we will get the 2020 published poems recorded.

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