Irish Poetry Reading Collection

Abstract The Irish Poetry Reading Collection, which forms part of the Irish Poetry Reading Archive, is a central repository for readings by Irish poets, in both the English and the Irish language. This collection aims to capture and preserve the rich and diverse landscape of poetry in Ireland, and includes the voices of: established poets; emerging poets; performance poets; avant-garde poets; English and Irish language poets; and Irish diaspora poets. Many of the readings are accompanied by handwritten or typed transcriptions of the poem, created by the poet especially for the reading.

Scope and content
The Irish Poetry Reading Archive is part of a project to create a central repository for poetry readings by Irish poets and writers. The collection captures the voice of the poet reading a selection of their work, and giving a very brief overview of the context and circumstances that influenced the writing of the poem. For the majority of readings, the poets also provided handwritten or typed transcriptions of the poem, allowing audience interaction with the poem and poet in a unique way.
This collection is an ongoing project, started in 2014, created and managed by UCD Library. Bringing together the voices of Irish poets in a curated secure environment will ensure that this cultural heritage collection is preserved for future generations. Over time, the collection will become a resource of national scope and significance, serving both national and international readers and scholars with interests in Irish poetry. UCD Library is extremely grateful to the large number of poets who are featured in the Irish Poetry Reading Archive, many of them Aosdána members, who have generously and freely given of their time to initiate the project.
