Poems for Patience is a long-running programme established by Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust in which poems are displayed on the Arts Corridor of the hospital and also displayed in waiting areas throughout the hospital and associated hospital units. In the past, the series has featured poems by leading Irish and international poets such as Seamus Heaney, Philip Schultz, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Vona Groarke, Jane Hirschfield, Tess Gallagher and Michael Coady. This year’s selection has been kindly chosen by Ailbhe Darcy.
Ailbhe Darcy’s most recent collection of poetry, Insistence (Bloodaxe, 2018), was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize and her first collection Imaginary Menagerie (Bloodaxe, 2011) was shortlisted for the dlr-Strong Award.
