File, úrscéalaí agus fliúiteadóir é Diarmuid Johnson. Fuair an bailiúchán Rún na mBradán moladh ó chriticeoirí éagsúla ar nós David Wheatley. Bhuaigh an t-urscéal Conaire Mór: Seacht nDoras na Cinniúna Gradam Leabhar na Bliana san Oireachtas 2017. Faoi Celia de Fréine, bhí an méid seo le rá ag an Irish Times: ‘Her involvement in drama, opera and filmmaking brings unusual energies to her poetry, extending the possibilities of the short lyric and evoking a world in the process of being discovered.’ Nuair a bhuaigh Paddy Bushe an 2017 Irish Times Poetry Now Award, mhol na moltóirí gléine, macántacht agus ionracas an tsaothair. Thiar sa bhliain 2006 bhuaigh Néalta le Philip Cummings Duais na Gaeilge sna Glen Dimplex New Writers Awards 2006. Mhol Poetry Ireland Review / Iris Éigse Éireann an tslí a bhfuil sé in ann téamaí as stair agus cultúr na nGael a cheangal le tráchtaireacht shóisialta a bhainean leis an lá inniu agus é sin a dhéanamh le grann géar atá nuálaíoch agus spreagúil. Is iomaí duais atá buaite ag Máire Ní Choilm mar amhránaí, san Oireachtas, Fleadh na hÉireann, an Comórtas Pan- Cheilteach agus eile. Fear an tí: Cathal Póirtéir.

Diarmuid Johnson is a poet, novelist and flute player. Of his collection Rún na mBradán, critic David Wheatley says: ‘these poems cross centuries and cultures with the breeziness of Frank O’Hara jaywalking’. Celia de Fréine is the author of the acclaimed Fiacha Fola; her latest collection is cuir amach seo dom : riddle me this. Awarding Paddy Bushe the 2017 Irish Times Poetry Now Award, the judges praised the ‘clarity, honesty and integrity’ of his work. Poetry Ireland Review has praised the manner in which Philip Cummings ‘combines themes from Irish history and Gaelic culture with modern-day social commentary, often ironic or acerbic, in a way that is innovative and refreshing’. Tonight we will also be joined by acclaimed traditional singer Máire Ní Choilm. The fear an tí is Cathal Póirtéir.
