Dino in the Arms

May 31, 2012 By: admin Category: 2012

I walked into the Gents at the Listowel Arms only to be greeted by Dino Martino  crooning “That’s amore” the very same as when I last spent. Euro cent here this time last year. Plus ça change!

Kilrush is shrouded in mist as we ready to leave for the ferry.

Going to Listowel tomorrow

May 30, 2012 By: admin Category: 2012, poets

I’m glad to say that I’ll be heading over to Listowel tomorrow for the day. My Creative Writing students at West Clare VTOS enjoyed last year’s visit so much that they insisted in going again this year! Though, it’ll be a new batch this year.

We’ll be catching the Shannon Ferry from Killimer to Tarbert and driving to Listowel.

I’m hoping to catch up with a few familiar faces from previous years such as poets Teri Murray and Pauline Fayne, as well as John McGrath (who was guest poet at the last Clare Three-Legged Stool Poets‘ reading of the season in Glór last month) and Michael Gallagher.

No doubt I will also bump into some unexpected faces! Perhaps yours will be one dear reader!
