Quotes from their selected poems are popping up at mystery locations around the city, creating an interactive poetry trail. Stanzas are painting the town with poetry so keep your eyes peeled, you never know where poetry might be on the prowl! Once you hunt down and find a quote share your pictures on Instagram (@Limerick2020), Twitter (@Limerick2020) or on Facebook, then hop on to www.limerick2020.ie where you can read the entire poem!
