Winter Warmer Videos 2022

25th-27th November

Ó Bhéal’s 10th Winter Warmer (and 2nd hybrid) festival presented over 30 poets from seven countries. Most of the featured guests appeared in-person at Nano Nagle Place, while others appeared virtually.

For the second time the festival hosted two poetry workshops, along with song from the brilliant Fiona Kelleher, a reading and round table discussion centered on relationships between Human & Non-Human Life in Port Cities Poetry, and a Closed-Mic set for poets who have featured in Ó Bhéal’s regular open-mic sessions during 2022.

The shortlist and prize-giving for Ó Bhéal’s International Poetry-Film Competition were also screened, as was an additional, special selection of poetry-films made in Ireland.

This year’s Winter Warmer also hosted the 2022 All-Ireland Poetry Slam Championship Final, featuring 12 poets (three from each province) who competed over three rounds. Our congratulations to the new All-Ireland Slam Champion Leon Dunne, as well as to runners up Helen Hastings and Jim Crickard.
