Visual documentary: ‘Georgie's Vision’

Thursday 14 February, 6.30pm

In September 1917, WB Yeats proposed to 25-year-old Georgie Hyde-Lees and they were married in October of that year. In this documentary we learn more about this extraordinary but self-effacing woman who was the catalyst for her husband’s greatest poetry, yet said “thank-you for leaving me out”. Contributors to the documentary include Professor Margaret Mills Harper, Ann Saddlemyer, Caitriona Yeats, Mark Patrick Hederman, the late John Montague and Pat Laffan.

Deirdre Mulrooney, producer of the documentary will lead a discussion following the viewing.
All welcome! Booking not required.
