Up at the New Kingdom bar on Church Street, George Rowley compered an open mic night for poets, singers and musicians on the Thursday and Friday of the festival. Here we have a short films from the first of those evenings.

Pauline Fayne reads “Carol”, written in memory of Tallaght Poet , Carol Carpenter:

Musical interlude. Singer / song names unknown:

John McCarthy reads “Two Doves Mating”:
