Local funding for poetry festival
PART of the Fermoy Town Council's amenity grant funds for 2013 have been allocated to the Fermoy International Poetry Festival Committee who are at present making all the final arrangements for this year's festival to which they expect to double the number of Poets coming to the town.
The festival is already earmarked as part of the official Fermoy contribution to the Gathering in 2013.
We can expect many more announcements of local interest as the momentum builds up for the countrywide return of our exiles this year. The Council allocated €2,000 to the Festival Committee towards the cost of the event.
