Festivals this October 2022 in Ireland

We’ve had our Indian Summer red skied nights, and that ‘grand stretch in the evening’ is no more. October brings with it garden lawns laced with frost, and doorways dusted with fallen leaves. That familiar wood and turf burning scent that fills the chilled air tells us the fires are lit. It’s time to get cosy and get that geansaí ready.

This month’s poem is ‘October’ by Irish poet Harry Clifton. Enjoy.
