MINISTER TO VISIT IWC - SEBASTIAN BARRY WILL READ

Lakeside horseshoe, Annaghmakerrig
A quick 'Hello!' from Annaghmakerrig where work on my book is going well and I am meeting various lovely writers, composers, translators and artists. Also eating FAR too much and enjoying the sun and lakeside walks.

Anyway, I just tuned in to tell y'all about this, which I won't make becasue I am going to see the lovely Emma Donoghue read at the Galway Arts Festival. Can't wait!

Anyway, this:

The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Mr Jimmy Deenihan, TD, will visit the Irish Writers' Centre on Wed 20 July at 7.00 pm to unveil a plaque acknowledging the financial support of his Department and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Centre.

The dual celebration will include a special guest reading by Sebastian Barry. It will continue with readings from selected writers and writing groups who have been using the Centre on a regular basis over the past couple of years. A reception before and afterwards will ensure that this is going to be an extremely enjoyable occasion, and everyone is invited to join in this celebration.

Máire - good old IWC. More funding needed, I say.
It is an idyll here, all right. As close to perfection as you will get.
