Tommy Murray Book Launch

Poet Tom French will launch Tommy Murray’s collection of poetry Counting Stained Glass Windows in Trim Library on Thursday next, 20 August, at 7pm. This the the twelfth book from the pen of the well-known Trim writer and it is being published by Lapwing Press.

Local solicitor Michael Regan will be master of ceremonies at the launch and Noel French of the Heritage Centre will say a few words as will Ray Butler of Trim Town Council. Tommy is the man behind the Meath Writers Circle and some members will also read poems at the launch.

Tommy has been involved in poetry reading, creative writing classes and collecting and publishing photographs and memories of Trim and Meath. He was a featured reader at one of our recent Boyne Readings and Open Mic. He was captain of the Writers Circle team at the recent Battle of the Books.

Counting Stained Glass Windows is a collection of the very best of his poems and should be well worth having. It costs eight euro.

I understand that Tom French is having his second poetry collection published in the autumn.
