Irish Poetry Reading Archive

Kerry Hardie looks at how one small boy struggles to find the words to articulate his response to death.

The Irish Poetry Reading Archive (IPRA) is a central repository that holds recordings of Irish poets and writers, reading their own work and giving a very brief overview of the context and circumstances that influenced the writing of their poems.

Many of the readings are accompanied by handwritten copies of the poem, created by the poet especially for the reading. This collection aims to capture and preserve the rich and diverse landscape of poetry in Ireland. It includes the voices of: established poets; emerging poets; performance poets; avant-garde poets; English and Irish language poets; and Irish diaspora poets.
