Crannog 26 - Spring 2011 Launch

Just back from a great weekend in Galway.  On Friday night I attended the launch of Crannog 26 in the Crane Bar, Sea Road.  I have to say that I love the Crannog launches and the atmosphere is always great.  There were a number of readers on the night including Deirdre Grimes, Sandra Bunting, Maire T Robinson, Kevin Higgins and Elizabeth Reapy.  Aifric McGlinchey, Tony O'Dwyer, Danielle McLaughlin, Mary Melvin Gheogan and Anna Snyder also have work included in the magazine.  I read my poem Pluto's Hidden Stars at the event. 

The fiction pieces included are of a very high standard, as are the poems, and of the poetry -  again I really like Deirdre Grimes' poem The Ice Sculpture.  Below are some pictures I took on the night.
