Doireann Ní Ghríofa reads ‘Brightening’

Doireann Ní Ghríofa’s reads her poem ‘Brightening’ as part of the 2020 edition of the Coole Park Poetry Series.

A series of filmed poems recorded in Coole Park during DruidGregory in 2020, a collaboration between Druid and the Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry Foundation.

An artistic conversation between the past and present, this poetry series involved poets of different cultural backgrounds living in Ireland, reading both their own work and the work of poets associated with Coole Park, including Lady Gregory, WB Yeats and JM Synge. These readings were filmed in the grounds of Coole Park during performances of DruidGregory.

The poets filmed were Seán Hewitt, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, FeliSpeaks, Evgeny Shtorn and ATMOS Collective.
