Culture Night 2019 is fast approaching.
Lúnasa has passed, hay has been harvested, the long stretch in the evenings is slipping away. Autumn is forever my favourite season.
I’ve been commissioned, alongside a small group of writers and musicians, to perform in Swords Castle on Friday the 20th of September from 7-9pm. Entry is free to all.
Full programme to be announced on Tuesday, August 6th: www.culturenight.ie

Still Worlds Turning, edited by Emma Warnock, includes stories by many legends and an introduction by June Caldwell:
