Three (or more) Billboards Outside Enniskillen & Sligo

July 19, 2018 – July 29, 2018 all-day
Enniskillen Sligo Border

Three Billboards Outside EnniskillenEnniskillen’s Happy Days and Sligo’s Tread Softly festivals come together for a cross-border collaboration celebrating the work of two great Irish Nobel Laureates: Samuel Beckett and WB Yeats. For a whole month, travellers heading down from Northern Ireland into the Republic will be treated to the last stanza of Yeats’ The Tower (a poem that inspired Beckett’s late film-play…but the clouds…) writ large across a series of specially commissioned bespoke billboards at the border, while drivers heading in the opposite direction will be welcomed to Northern Ireland with Beckett’s liminal 11 line poem neither.
