Happy New Year!
We’re delighted to kick off 2023 with a fantastic online event. Join us on Tuesday 24th of January at 8pm for ‘Roger Casement Queer Icon of the 1916 Rising – A Disputed Legacy’.
On Friday last, December 2nd, some of the committee had the pleasure of joining the good folks in Lewisham Irish Centre to celebrate their 30th anniversary.
If you were at our AGM in October, you would have heard us discuss that we wanted to give a gift, but something that was truly unique. We were delighted to be able to commission a local LGBTQ+ artist and our network treasurer, Yvonne Devine, to create that gift.
On Friday, it was a lovely honour to present Kathleen Sheridan, CEO and Colum Mackey, Chair of Lewisham Irish with the commissioned painting of the centre.Continue reading “Lewisham Irish Centre 30th Anniversary”

Several are already recognised as leading poets in Ireland, but the anthology also includes poets at the beginning of their career who are redefining the landscape of Irish poetry.Continue reading “Online Event: Queering The Green with Paul Maddern”
