Noel King at Boyne Reading

A very enjoyable Boyne Reading and Open Mic last evening in Trim. Our featured reader, Noel King, read from his recently published collection Prophesying the Past and held the audience's attention with his closely observed poems dealing with everyday things, looking anew at the past and the present. As chairman Paddy said, Noel King "christened" our new podium the making of which was arranged by member Anne Crinion.

A fine selection of items in the Open Mic including many from our own group, some from the Meath Writers Circle with Tommy Murray and Frank Murphy in fine form and Oran Ryan a welcome visitor from Dublin with an impressive poem.
