Speaking at the launch of Goldsmith Festival last night, chairman, Arthur Conlon, said: “It’s wonderful to be back live again after three years. “For the 2022 Festival, as well as examining comprehensively our central theme, another priority was to ensure that we also have a strong programme for those with an interest in Goldsmith’s literature. Our successful poetry competition would also not be possible with the support of Nally Bros, Ballymahon.”For more on The Goldsmith Festival 2022 programme and to register for tickets please visit: olivergoldsmithfestival.com/.
