I’d a lovely time in the studio on Saturday, chatting to local artist Christopher Banahan about a pop up exhibition at his house next weekend. There will be lots of artwork to celebrate the Cruinniu na mBad Festival which takes place in Kinvara on 19/20th August. And Kinvara FM 92.4fm will be live at the pier. We hope to remain dry!

Also on this podcast, a poem from Anne Tannam’s most recent collection: ‘Tides Shifting Across My Living Room Floor’, published by Salmon Poetry. Find out more here.

Hope you enjoy the mix of music! Comments and requests are always welcome.

@MissWarby – I’m on my way!

Yes, I’m heading back. To the house, the lake, the lovely staff and – if the vibes are all aligned – perhaps a meeting with Miss Worby, the resident ghost.

I’ll be redrafting and making the final push towards my first collection: This Little World. 

The dreaded lurgy has been getting me down for the past few days, but the antibiotics are kicking in and I can’t wait to get up to Annaghmakerrig.  (For more about this wonderful artists’ residence, have a look at Forward! Retreat! – Part the Second on my Writer’s Blog above.)

Now, I must away to pack my books, notebooks, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate.
