The Patrick Kavanagh Weekend is one of the most interesting and thought provoking events on the Irish literary events calendar. Dedicated to Ireland's best loved poet, it features musical performances, drama, storytelling and the annual poetry award. Visitors will be energised through debate and their participation over the weekend provides a great opportunity to make new friends. Events are held in the Patrick Kavanagh Centre set in the picturesque and tranquil village of Inniskeen among the drumlins of Monaghan. The ancient landscape of Ireland has been an inspiration for legends, a home to poets and proved to be a rich source of inspiration for Kavanagh, prompting him to 'dabble in verse'. The scenery has changed very little since Patrick Kavanagh time which makes it a perfect backdrop for the weekend of events.
