LitLab ~ The Trim Poetry Festival 2020!

Lit Lab was initiated by the Cavan and Meath Arts Offices back when! I remember Tommy telling me about the group, so it would be pre 2010 at least. Anyway first chance to listen to some of the members although I have read some of their poems. The Trim Poetry Festival has left a nice collection of videos for dipping into and will probably load one or two more.
