We've just about recovered from our road trip to Dublin Book Festival on Friday: a traffic accident and closed motorway outside Newry meant that we almost didn't make it at all!
Many thanks to Kate Cunningham and Arnold Fanning of Irish Writers Centre for making it a special night for us and all our visiting poets: Linda McKenna, Mel Bradley, Amy Wyatt Rafferty, Mel McMahon, Carla McGaharan, Helen Hastings, Paul Daniel Rafferty and Tory Campbell.
Special thanks also to Rob Doyle for being a gentleman and agreeing to open up while we were stuck in traffic, it's a great regret that we missed him read!
Thanks to all the Dublin poets who read as well, most of them new names to us; it was a delight to discover your work.
Remember, since we were away on Friday, Purely Poetry open mic night is now on this Friday coming, at Crescent Arts Centre, see you soon!
