It was a special night in Trim on Thursday as poet Tom French launched Boyne Berries 1916. Twenty four contributors read and attended on the night, while poet Deirdre Hines was present in the form of an MP3 recording of her poem The Letter Read as Pond. Mick McGann-Jones recited his poem Bullets and he also treated the audience to a piece called Mna na hEireann on his fiddle.
Thank you to everyone who came from near and far to make the night a success. For his decade of service as secretary of the Boyne Writers' Group Michael Farry was presented with a copy of an illustration by C. E Brock for Gulliver's Travels called 'Three Great Scholars'.
