praise for poetry performances

I first saw Angela Carr perform some of her poems at Poetry Ireland Introductions, as part of the Dublin Writers’ Festival, in the Irish Writers Centre last year. Her performance and her words held the audience electrified. Speaking from a personal perspective, her poems on that occasion captured all the rage and sorrow of a generation of young people caught in the fall of the Irish Celtic Tiger and living with its economic consequences. The acumen of her words touched a nerve that all who heard her felt and shuddered.
