Dermot Bolger posters
We're shortly putting up in English classrooms fine block-mounted posters of four poems by Dermot Bolger - 'In a Clonkdalkin Supermarket Carpark', 'Things he will miss', 'Graffiti on a Corner' and 'Haulier passing The Red Cow Roundabout, 11.15 pm.' These are being distributed to schools in South Dublin as part of the InContext3 Project commissioned as part of the South Dublin County Council Per Cent for Art Scheme. First written for the posters, these poems were then added to ones by other authors in the newly-published Night & Day: twenty-four hours in the life of Dublin City. Bolger's poems from 'The Clondalkin Suite' are being displayed outdoors in the Clondalkin area (above).
