On Sunday 10th November at 2.30pm, I’ll be joining writer John MacKenna and other special guests for the closing event of the Laois Leaves Festival. The readings take place in the atmospheric surrounds of the St. Brigid’s church in Ballintubbert, where Cecil Day Lewis’ father once ministered. Followed by supper and discussion at nearby Ballintubbert House. Tickets 25 Euro. Contact Dominique at Ballintubbert House on 0873127639.
