Patron Scheme

Support Cúirt

Since 1985, Cúirt has brought book lovers and writers under one roof for a week every April in Galway and has developed a reputation as Ireland’s premier literary event. This year as we bring Cúirt online for the first time, we’ll be streaming live to book lovers and writers under many roofs. We’ve made the decision that all of our events will be free and accessible to all, but if you are able and willing to donate, your support will be much appreciated.

You can choose to donate as you register for any of our events online or by clicking the yellow button below to donate via PayPal.

All donations received this year will go towards supporting the fees we pay our writers. If you have any questions on how to donate, please get in touch at and our team will be happy to help.

Cúirt relies on the support of Galway’s local business community to continue to invite such exciting writers of international standing to Galway and to continue to grow annually. Every contribution helps to maintain Cúirt’s reputation as one of the most exciting literary events in the country, and Galway as Ireland’s cultural capital.
