The theme for this month's get together was journeying or travel in some form or other and the meeting attracted a fair old attendance with about seventeen people there in all. The poetry read was an interesting mix of both modern and old favourites followed by a little light refreshments afterwards. "Tel Aviv" by Ronan Rodgers was the opening contribution which was an interesting take on the Eurovision and who knows? Other pieces read included, "An Englishman Abroad" by myself, "The Road to Kinsale" by Aubrey De Vere, "The Weary Traveller" by Willie G. Hodgins, "Hollyhead" by Jonathan Swift, "The Road not Taken" by Robert Frost, "Originally" by Carol Ann Duffy, "Memo of a Camel Man" by Joseph Richard Dunne, "To Trust in the Not Knowing" by Marion Murphy, "The Caravelles" by Sir John Squires, "Cambodia" by Lee Crowell, " The Journey Home" Maura/ Eamon Flanagan, "Clouds" by Eugene Kane, "Madrigals and Ploughing" by Giovanni Pascalli, translated by Seamus Heaney? Not sure on those! " The Washer Woman" by Seamus Heaney, "Shoe Shore" by Pheme Glass and "The Road Home" Gillian Allnutt. A few there I'm not familiar with! Also a writing group from Raheny, Dublin joined us on the night.
