Vote Yes for Equality (Ireland)

On a whistle-stop visit to Dublin recently, I was delighted to be invited to read at 'Books Upstairs'. Originally, I was just going to support my friend, Enda Coyle-Greene but when Nessa O'Mahony, the organizer of Thornfield Poets heard I was a poet too, I was welcomed in.  Delighted, since it was for a great cause - in support of the Yes vote for Equality to be held in Ireland on 22nd May and what a lovely reading it was - such a great bunch of talented poets.

 Front row: Enda Coyle-Greene, Louise C. Callaghan, Nessa O'Mahony,and Clairr O'Connor. Back row from L to R: Mairide Woods, Catherine Ann Cullen, Eileen Casey, Maggie O'Dwyer and self.

It's a grand bookshop if you're ever in Dublin, with a cafe upstairs, delicious cakes etc and charming stained glass bow window with seat below. Readings are held up in the cafe. It's easy to find - not far from Trinity College on the way to O'Connell Bridge.

D'Olier Street, Dublin.
