Boyne Berries (3)
The third issue of The Boyne Writers' Group literary magazine "Boyne Berries" was successfully launched at The Castle Arch hotel in Trim on thursday the 10th of April by the Chairman of Trim Town Council, Mr Ray Butler.
It includes contributions from many parts of the world as well as featuring some of the poetry of Brendan Carey Kinane, a member of the group and outright winner of the Boyle Arts festival in 2007. Other well known writers include Kevin Furey, Kevin Higgins, Marie MacSweeney and I'd better stop dropping names.
The decision to launch a literary magazine must have been something of a gamble, but one that has been successful to date in that it provides an outlet for local writers that would not otherwise exist. Added to that it "flies the flag" in some sense wherever it ends up.
