An Evening with Michael Longley

Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing and the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Trinity College were delighted to welcome the esteemed poet Michael Longley for an evening of poetry.

Longley is renowned for the beauty of his compact, meditative lyrics which have been described as “masterpieces of lucidity.” Longley reflected on ageing and memory by reading poems by other poets and poems from his own books, including The Stairwell, winner of the 2015 Griffin International Poetry Prize, as well as new work.
