School Poetry competition

Acclaimed poet and author Geraldine Mitchell has been judging our schools’ poetry competition for several years and has been hugely impressed by the high standard of entries.

Children from primary schools in Tipperary are invited to write poems in response to a different theme each year and their writing is celebrated at the festival.

The theme for the 2018 competition was Wild Wonders and Imagined Worlds. 

We’re grateful to The Book Shop in Nenagh who sponsor competition prizes and to committee member Margaret Folan, who co-ordinates the competition
