Donegal’s Poetic Atlantic Way – A Celebration: 

8pm to 10.30pm

Join Michael Sugrue and friends for a night of Donegal imagery, poetry recitals, video on location, and music, connecting you to the county. Michael’s coffee table book,  Donegal’s Poetic Atlantic Way, is being launched at this event. The book showcases Donegal’s natural beauty, through over 200 stunning photographs combined with poetry. This fusion of unique Donegal vistas is combined with lyrics linked to the stunning pictures.

The book tells a story of the unfolding of the day from dawn to twilight and beyond. The poems are for the most part linked to the imagery.  Light, lines and lyrics combine to make this book a must for those who love nature. Please note that income raised from the book will be donated to Donegal Mind Wellness, Letterkenny Hospice and Breast Centre Northwest – Research and Development.
