Poetry Book Launch

These are exciting times for the Cavan/Meath LitLab writers group with a number of summer readings planned. Our involvement with the Fleadh Cheoil in Cavan will continue. We have planned a great follow-up to last year's poetry postcards and the previous year's haiku coasters but it's a secret for the moment.

The driving force behind the LitLab group is Paddy Halligan and he has just published his first poetry collection Waitress and Other Poems.

Padraic McIntyre, director of Livin’ Dred Theatre says of the collection: In this collection Halligan takes his personal, often hilarious but always beautiful, observations and makes them relevant to each and every one of us. A true delight.

Paddy is launching the collection on Thursday 17 May at 7.30 in Bailieborough Library, Market Square, Bailieborough and all are welcome.

Unfortunately we have a Boyne Reading and Open Mic that evening so the Meath section of LitLab will be unable to attend but I'm sure it will be a great evening. Good luck Paddy.

You can purchase the book online here.
