I feel I am talking to the wall here but, as I use the blog as a class of archive for myself, on I go. There's lots happening this week (is there ever not?!).

I can't attend the Culture Night 'Make Them Visible' event in Dublin for Oxfam which features a new flash fiction of mine but, if you're in Dublin, you might like to go. Oxfam Books, Parliament Street, 6.30pm. More here.

The reason I can't go is that I will be in a field in Meath. This field. I am taking part in the Spirit of Folk Festival on Saturday with the Irish Times Book Club. Reading from Miss Emily and chatting to the truly lovely Mr Gary Quinn. We'll be on the Hall of Heroes stage at 5pm. The sun is meant to shine this weekend so hopefully it'll be a mud-free zone.

On Sunday I head to the Molly Keane House in Ardmore, Co. Waterford, to teach an all-day novel writing class. (Booked out). Molly's is a beautiful house and I'm delighted to be back there again.

Meanwhile Cathy McNally gave Miss Emily a great review on her blog. It's here. And she is giving away a copy of the book too.

No, not talking to the wall! :) The festival sounds great. I had never heard of this one and just this week a couple of my facebooky friends have popped up as going. I may have to dust my Glastonbury wellies off and get back to the fields.

Thanks a million, Shauna :)
I haven't been to a camping festival in a couple of years so it should be fun.
