Home from Listowel

June 18, 2009 By: admin Category: Events

Wow – what a wonderful festival Writers’ Week is. I ‘m a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve never been before. The opening ceremony was amazing – huge crowds and a brilliant atmosphere. When the ceremony was over, I got to meet (ok stand near) Gabriel Byrne. Next day, both my readings went really well. (Hi to everyone in Listowel Convent and Dromclough NS – you were all great.) After my readings, it was back to the Listowel Arms, where I got to meet Joseph O’Neill and Jung Chang – both charming people.

Huge thanks to the organisers for inviting me, and to my minders who took such good care of me. You’ll have to put road blocks around the town to keep me out next year!
