Séamus Barra Ó Súilleabháin and Seán Ó Coistealbha
Séamus Barra Ó Súilleabháin won the 2011/2012 Irish Language poetry Slam.
He is an Irish language rap poet from the stronghold of county Kerry. Seamus brings a youthful, vibrant and fresh approach to the world of Irish poetry.
Due to circumstances beyond our control Séamus is unable to travel for the event, but immeasurable talent, Tony Curtis, has offered to read some poetry in his place.
Seán Ó Coistealbha has been Chief Executive Officer of Muintearas from 1996. He has spent thirty-two years working with Muintearas, where he started working as Youth Manager in 1985. He has considerable experience in community development, education and the Irish language. He has published two poetry books, Stadhan in 2012 and Dídean in 2002. He has been closely involved in Irish language theatre since 1980, taking many parts in plays with the Taibhdhearc and Aisteoirí an Spidéil.
