James Linnane a member of both The Meath Writers' Circle and the others was the guest reader at the Coffee Shop venue in the Knightsbridge Village last night. And very comfortable as well, especially for those who like to relax between stories, or poems, not that the readings were geared towards that end. Something of a mad humour about. James read extracts from his recent publication "The Life And Times Of A Gotcha" as well as from his first book which was titled "Never Take An Irishman Seriously Unless He's Armed" so you can see where the humour was heading. This was published when he was in New York and is now sadly out of print. He also read a couple of poems which were excellent, especially the first one. Other readers on the night included members of both the Boyne Writers, Meath Writers, and not forgetting The Meath Cavan Lit-Lab or should that be the other way around. Michael Farry's poem about Manchester United and the air disaster is one to remember. Links to Michael Farry, Orla Fay, and Michael Shiels who were all taking photographs over on the right. Worth a look!
