Ciaran Mangan, Meath Co Librarian, will launch issue 7 of Boyne Berries magazine next Thursday evening, 8pm in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim. All welcome. Over fifteen of the contributors will be present and will read their pieces from the magazine.
We don't have any regular funding, we did get small but welcome grants from the Meath Arts Office twice and a donation from a well wisher in Trim but otherwise the magazine is funded by sales and our writers group members subscription. Each new issue is a milestone.
This issue is bigger by ten pages than previous ones purely because the editor (me!) miscalculated the number of pages when choosing material. Anyway some very good poetry and prose in those 70 pages.
And the cover (above) once again is by Greg Hastings - an image taken recently of the snow-covered tree-lined avenue to Lynch's Castle ruins in Summerhill, Co Meath.
More later in the week.
