2018 Writer in Residence


Wednesday, July 25, 2018

We are delighted to announce that Paul McNamara will be the Dromineer Literary Festival Writer in Residence for 2018.


Paul, a spoken word and performance poet, will be around for the whole Festival, writing new poems, working with school children and popping up to perform in some surprising places!  Look out for him.  


Paul McNamara won the Munster Spoken Word Slam and the Yeats' Tower Poetry Slam in 2016 and in 2015 won Limerick's Got Talent.  His work has featured on RTE Radio, TV3 and Irish TV.


Paul wants to make people laugh and has written a one-poet performance piece called "Quarter Life Crisis" which featured at the Galway Fringe Festival earlier this year.
