Limerick Literary Festival 2017 kicks off its schedule tomorrow (23 February) when UL Professor and author, Eoin Devereux delivers "an illustrated talk on Oscar Wilde and Morrissey".

The official opening takes place on Friday, at 6pm, in Limerick City Gallery of Art in Pery Square. Journalist, Olivia O'Leary will officiate. The festival runs throughout the weekend concluding on Sunday.

Building on this significant history, the Limerick Literary Festival seeks to promote Limerick nationally as a place of literary excellence and to provide a platform where readers can meet their favourite authors and other readers. This year, we have gathered up to 20 participants from Ireland, England, Italy and the US in six different venues in Limerick city.
