Cúirt International Festival of Literature
The festival consists of a variety of events taking place over the course of a week each April with attendances and contributions from Irish and international authors. It includes readings of poetry and fiction, discussions, poetry slams, book launches, masterclasses, spoken and musical performances, multimedia events, theatre, and visual art. It was originally a poetry festival but its scope has broadened to include other forms.
The festival is sponsored by Údarás na Gaeltachta, National University of Ireland, Galway, the Arts Council, Galway City Council, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Fáilte Ireland, and Foras na Gaeilge.
