Lismore continues to surprise and impress with its approach to arts and cultural events. There is always a happy feeling about the picturesque town and their latest project to celebrate All Ireland Poetry Day is a fine example of that energy.

Ken Madden the Mayor of Lismore has brought together ten poets with connections to Waterford and Lismore and displayed a poem from each in windows up and down the charming main thoroughfare. The beautifully designed posters with large typeface and a wonderful creative touch and some vacant premises have gotten a new lease of life with a clever or interesting poem in the window.
