Just wanted to make a quick post about the launch of my debut poetry collection 'In the Library of Lost Objects' last week in the Damer Hall, Dublin. A very special thanks to Poetry Ireland for hosting the event. A really great crowd turned out for the occasion and Niall MacMonagle made a very thoughtful and generous introduction to the work. I know someone of you couldn't make it along but I really appreciated the messages of support I received. A big up also to Shauna Gilligan who helped out on the night with the book stall.
Here are some images from the night. A big thank you to my good friend Brian Walsh for taking the photos.
