Highfalutin’ in Capital City

Just booked my train tickets to Capital City – and I’m high as a highfalutin’ gal can be!

SO looking forward to joining the rest of the gang for the gig  tomorrow at the Liquor Rooms on Wellington Quay.  It’s organised by the amazing Anne Tannam, so we know that it’s going to be fantastic. Still haven’t finalised what poems I’ll read from This Little World.  There’ll be a few copies for sale, by the way.   The fun kicks off at 7.30pm – so bigí linn!

Now, where did I put my ‘good’ handbag …

 

The Western Skyline Podcast – 13 January 2018

The first Western Skyline of 2018 has an eclectic mix of music spanning 60 years – from the Beatles, Cockney Rebel, the Alan Parsons Project, Carly Simon, Sting, The Script, and others. There are details of the Music for Galway Midwinter Festival and of the planned commemoration at Kiltartan of Major Robert Gregory, on the 100th anniversary of his death in WWl (see image). I hope you enjoy the show.
