Danny Hannon Honoured at Writers’ Week 2019
Danny held his beloved Eileen’s hand at his big night at Listowel Writers Week, May 29 2019.
The Hannon family at the door of the family home as they prepare to take the short walk to The Listowel Arms for Opening Night.
Maurice escorted his mother while Joanna Keane, daughter of his great friend, John B. escorted Danny.
The night was filled with emotion, love, pride, affection and a tinge of sadness.
The story of Danny’s contribution to the Arts was told as this very humble gentle man listened. There was talk of drama and books, of plays and playing and particularly innovation in the field of theatre. Many of Danny’s family and friends were there to celebrate him.
V.I.P. guests Joseph O’Connor, Colm Tóibín and Carol Drinkwater listened enthralled.
And still Danny held Eileen’s hand. He later joked about the manicure.
The hall was packed. Danny has a long association with Mercier Press who co incidentally sponsored the trophy.
Danny and Eileen posed with Eddie and Helen Moylan, parents of Eileen who designed and crafted the beautiful presentation piece at her Claddagh Design studio in Macroom.
His good friend, Jimmy Hickey was on hand to congratulate Danny. He was just one of a long line of well-wishers.
Joys of Free Travel
I had a little rail trip last weekend and I took a photo of this Victorian post box in some train Station but I cant remember which one.
This is Thurles.
Listowel Pitch and Putt
I was walking in the park yesterday when I spotted that the pitch and putt course was closed. There is a good reason. The hard working club members are getting the course ready for the Munster Championships at the weekend.
The always beautiful course is looking even more beautiful today.
