We had a phenomenally successful launch with a very large attendance, the biggest yet. I haven’t done the accounts but we raised more than €900.00 for Brother Kevin who couldn’t attend due to illness.I think I have distributed books to all Authors who attended, if I’m wrong please let me know and I’ll provide them as and when we meet for Inkslinger sessions.We oversold my expectations on the night and I’m now short of some copies for those who didn’t turn up on the night, but no panic, I’ve ordered more.If you haven’t received your copies, please let me know when you will be in the IWC and I’ll bring them with me. I don’t want to be lugging around a heavy satchel of handsome volumes if you aren’t going to be there.Meantime, congratulations to all a sundry on a very successful project and a very warm and fulfilling night. Give yourselves a huge round of applause.
We did some “quare” stuff, said Harry – to quote the great poet and story teller, Brendan Behan. ” The wine flowed freely” by Katie was great… very apt!
I love the hymn “Gone” and Eva brought it back in her story.
“Swiped Right on Tinder” by Brendan Palmer was a classic.
“The eight minute flight” reminded me of the flight from Papa Westray to Westray in the Orkney Islands.. not for the faint hearted.
Davey’s music and Liv’s singing put some real class to the evening.
Thanks for a great evening, Inkies, as fabulous as ever.
