Poems in shop windows

Our current Mayor of Lismore, Ken Madden, came up with this wonderful idea to invite 10 poets to submit a poem to be displayed in shop windows of our little town of Lismore.

All the poets have a Waterford connection, they are either born in this county, or live here. 
The poems appeared 'overnight' to celebrate All Ireland Poetry Day, on the 6th October.
Invited poets are:
 James Ballantyne, Edward Denniston, Corina Duyn, John Ennis, Áine Uí Fhoghlú, Thomas McCarthy, Liam Murphy, George O’Brien, Mark Roper and Peter Sirr.

The photographs don't quite do justice to the quality of the displays.
My apologies.
But I hope it will give you an idea of what's on offer and that it will inspire you 
bring a visit to Lismore!
