STACCATO is Dublin’s newest Spoken Word event founded by writer Tanya Farrelly and co-hosted by David Butler. Our aim is to showcase the best of poetry and prose by both new and established writers. There is also a featured musician on the night. The last half an hour is an open mic session where audience members are invited to read flash fiction or poetry! Event takes place in the basement of Toner’s Pub (Baggot Street) on the second Wednesday of every month!

Writers whom we’ve hosted so far have included: Lia Mills, Catherine Dunne, Mary O’ Donnell, Colin Barrett, Noel Duffy, Kate Dempsey, John O’ Donnell, Jean O’ Brien, and Adam Wyeth to name but a few…. see the full gallery below..

Musicians have included: Keith Burke, Rachael McCormick, Bern, Mark Flynn, Ronan Ward, Grainne Hunt, Aoife Leigh, Mark Caplice, Declan Greene, Kate Sheehan and Maurice Counihan and little ole’ me: Tanya Farrelly!
