PoetryReadingwithMickDelap-AllinghamFestival2016Ballyshannon-5.jpeg

Led by Allingham favourite Mick Delap and featuring readings by Monica Corish, Winifred McNulty and Enda Mc Gloin. A big hit last year. Highly recommended. Mick Delap began to turn seriously to his writing after he had retired from the BBC World Service in 2000. In 2002 he won best First Collection at Listowel Writers Week.  The following year his collection, River Turning Tide was published and in 2015 Opening Time was published by Arlen House, Dublin. Mick has also created the ‘’’Bantry Bay Suite’’ of poems which detail the attempted French landing in 1796.
