POETRY ALOUD Poetry Speaking Competition 2022 is open for entries

The National Library of Ireland and Poetry Ireland, in partnership with University College Cork have announced the POETRY ALOUD Poetry Speaking Competition 2022 for post-primary school students is now open for entries.

Poetry Aloud is the annual poetry speaking competition open to all students attending second level schools on the island of Ireland.

The competition, which has run since 2007 and has involved thousands of students in that time, took place virtually in 2021 due to the challenges presented by Covid-19. 

The 2022 competition is now open for entries, with the first round continuing to be a virtual competition.
