Yeats2015 will celebrate and commemorate the life, work, influence and achievements of W.B. Yeats. Through an engaging, celebratory and cultural programme, it will showcase Ireland as a dynamic, inspiring and creative place.
It will be a year-long national and international celebration of the life and works of the Nobel Prize winning poet William Butler Yeats. It will mark 150 years since his birth on June 13th 1865. The year-long celebrations will be rooted in Sligo – Yeats’ ‘spiritual home’ – and connect with every county across Ireland.
The celebrations will draw people to Ireland to begin to understand what inspired him and to share that experience. It is intended that institutions and organisations from around Ireland and the world will partner with Yeats 2015 to celebrate this important event.

The students invited election candidates from the Sligo-Leitrim Constituency to take part in a video to allow voters to get to know their candidates a little better. Here is my video.
