Opening Night  Listowel Writers’ Week 2014

My first pic shows the packed ballroom in The Listowel Arms for Opening Night 2014. Then a flavour of the charming mix of local people and celebrities that makes Writers’ Week so intimate and so global at the same time.

Paul Durkan
Colm Tóibín
Mark Piggott
Bert, Paula and Vincent never miss an opening night

 Eliza Buckley whose singing charmed us all.

Where Fun and Frolics were to be had

Listowel Community Centre, venue for  The National Children’s Literary Festival at Writers’ Week. This year again, the children’s programme will be centered in the Community Centre.

Take a look at these photos from last year (2014) . An even better  programme of children’s events is planned for this year.


Development at Cahirdown

And in May 2015 this development is going on at Cahirdown  beside the An Post Centre. It’s a new service station, I’m told.
