In Memory of Patrick Kavanagh


This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the passing of one of Ireland’s greatest poets- Patrick Kavanagh. A native of Inniskeen in Monaghan, Patrick Kavanagh wrote two poems that will resonate with many of the participants in the Remembrance Run 5k in the Phoenix Park on Sunday, November 12th. Patrick Kavanagh died on November 30th, 1967 and we will light a special candle to celebrate his life and work at the Remembrance Run 5k. Actor, Poet and Patrick Kavanagh authority P.J Brady from Cavan recites two of Patrick Kavanagh’s best known poems- In Memory of My Mother and In Memory of My Father while sitting on the Patrick Kavanagh Memorial Seat on the banks of the Grand Canal.
