another great Hermit day!.. book launches..

Hermit Collective: Saturday in Claremorris Town Hall was really good; paintings, photographic art, sculpture, crafts, prints, poetry, original songs, traditional irish music, sitar, and puppets! Plus we held a raffle for the Pikpa Camp on Lesvos, and raised 200euro, so that's been lodged and should be with them buying essentials in the next couple of days...
My latest chapbook SNOWBIRD is being launched this week in Ballaghaderreen library, and then again as accompaniment to Gavin Porter's new art exhibition, in Ballymote library next week; it'll be brilliant!
