Yeats Centenary Billboard

2023 is the Centenary of the award of the Nobel Prize for Literature to William Butler Yeats.
Yeats found much inspiration from the landscape and people of Sligo “for his always inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation”.
As part of the centenary programme, in Yeats Country, a commemorative billboard will take prominence for communities in Sligo town to remember this first Nobel Prize award to an Irish person. 
The Yeats Centenary billboard is a reflection for communities living in Sligo and a welcome to all who visit.

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