Boyne Berries 7
Ciaran Mangan of The Meath County Library did the honours at the launch of the seventh edition of the Boyne Berries literary magazine at The Castle Arch Hotel in Trim on Thursday last. On what was one of the wettest nights of the year, a large crowd, some travelling from as far away as Dublin and Cork turned out, with as many as twenty reading their contributions of poetry or prose. A journey into the dark perhaps with Peter Goulding leading off with "The Lie" and others such as "Mad" by Afric McGlinchey and "Tribal Dancer" by Blaithin Allain adding to the surreal. Further in there are others in the same vein with "School Run" by Aideen Henry, memorable both for its content and delivery. Rory O' Sullivan has a fine piece as usual " Apocalypse" showing how to string traditional verse together, and Paddy Smith no slouch when it comes to delivery himself. Far too many to mention though. Best to get a copy! Click on the Boyne Writers' site opposite for details!
