Longford County Library is pleased to announce the dates for this year's Padraic Colum International Literary Weekend.

Each year County Longford proudly honours the legacy of one of its most famous sons, Padraic Colum, an acclaimed writer of international renown. This year the Padraic Colum International Literary Weekend will take place from Friday, May 17, to Saturday, May 18 and will form part of a literary month in Longford.

The other two Literary festivals taking place in Longford during this month are the Maria Edgeworth Literary Festival (May 9 to 12) and The Goldsmith International Literary Festival (May 31 to June 2). This year's Gathering promises to be a wonderful festival celebrating all aspects of Colum’s life and work, with talks, walks, workshops, a commemorative concert, and of course, the second year of the Padraic Colum International Poetry Competition (details to follow shortly).

If you are travelling for this event and have any queries in relation to accommodation or transport, please visit: or telephone Longford Tourism Office on +353-43-3342577.
