This is what we would like you to do. 

Write a letter.

Start it, “Dear Ireland”, and talk to the nation about what you think it should be discussing. Whether it is your thoughts on COVID-19 or Black Lives Matter, housing or the economy, or something entirely different. You decide.

We will choose the letters that we feel best express the many different hopes, experiences, and challenges facing Ireland at this moment.

Each letter we choose will be read live on the Abbey stage by one of the country’s leading actors and broadcast globally as the next phase of our Dear Ireland conversation.

Submissions are now closed. What happens next? 

By submitting an entry you agree that if selected, your letter can be performed as part of Dear Ireland, broadcast online, and used for associated marketing, communications, and publicity.

A digital copy of your letter will be preserved in the Abbey Theatre Archive.

All letters will be reviewed after the closing date (Sunday 28 June). We will be in contact with everyone who submitted a letter at some point in July.
