THREE BILLBOARDS (OR MORE) OUTSIDE ENNISKILLEN, FERMANAGH

DATES: 25 July – 25 August 2018

LOCATION: Details to follow

DESIGN: Alan Milligan

Enniskillen’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 across the border into the Republic of Ireland 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.
