Trim Swift Festival Launch

The latest issue of Limerick based poetry magazine Revival is being launched tonight at the Locke Bar (upstairs in the Loft Venue) at 8.00pm! All Welcome. I have a poem in this issue, the title poem of my High Noon series of poems. I'm delighted but disappointed not to be able to go down and read at the launch.

The reason? The official opening of the Trim Swift Festival is taking place at 7.30 pm this evening with a champagne reception in the new OPW Headquarters in the town featuring Professor Andrew Carpenter, Minister Noel Dempsey and a number of surprise guests! It will also include the announcement of the winners of the Swift Satire Competition judged by RTE radio presenter, John Murray - update here later.

Later this evening at 9.30 pm the Grand Final of the Standup Row pub competition will take place in the Malt House Pub, Athboy Gate, Trim. The contest is between The Steps and Lenihans.
