Battle of the Books: Bob Dylan

Congratulations to Meath Writers Circle who won the Battle of the Books yesterday at the Trim Swift Festival. They defeated us by two points I think after a very exciting and close contest. Very good contributions by everyone and what was especially pleasing was the range of satire on offer. Well done to captain Tommy Murray, Frank Murphy, Jimmy Peppard and Mark Doyle. We will be back next year! Frank has pictures here and Tommy here.

The Battle ran late so a dash to Limerick for Bob Dylan's fourth of July concert - the last of his present European tour. Made it with plenty of time to spare and enjoyed a great concert with some standout performances. Set list here.

More later perhaps on both events. Home 2am - some work this morning.
