Ireland Revisited: Scenes Along the Journey,” a photography exhibit, will accompany the readings. Led by MSUM English Professors and MFA faculty members Dr. Alan Davis and Dr. Thom Tammaro, the Ireland Literature and Writing Study Tour group spent two weeks traveling the Emerald Isle, including stays in Dublin, Cork, Tralee, Galway, and Sligo (Yeats Country) and visits to the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Carrowkeel megalithic cemetery, and numerous sites in and around Sligo, inspiration to 1923 Nobel Prize-winning poet W.B. Yeats.
