Special thanks goes to Group 8 and the gallery for hosting; to Maureen Gallagher for doing such a fine job of launching the chapbook; thanks to the cake and crumble, salad and sandwich makers. Thanks for the cards, the pressies, the flowers. Thanks to my sis Úna for taking pics. And thanks to Lucy for selling the book on the night. Thanks to Tommy who, Jesus-style, produced more wine when all the launch wine was guzzled.
It looks like we'll be doing it all again in Dublin in December...watch this space! In the meantime, a few pics from Saturday's do:
