We went to the Cúirt Literary Festival launch in Galway on Tuesday. I have to admit we had already taken a couple of glasses of Prosecco in our room at the House Hotel but we had a good excuse as this was our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The launch was in the museum and we were a bit giddy by the time we got there. This was possibly as much because the sun was shining and we could all be outside as anything else. I was glad, though, that I'd put on the long-sleeved thermal vest. There was a sharp wind slicing in off the river.
On Wednesday we launched our anthology Three Times Daily. Fifteen of us from the 2008/09 MA in Writing at NUIG had finally produced something physical that we were all a part of. We were very proud and delighted that people came to the launch and even bought our book. If anyone was reading this I'd say do the same. Buy it here.
