A warm welcome to writer William Wall who has just joined us on podcasts.ie.  William Wall has just begun a 5 week residency at The Princess Grace Irish Library in Monaco but we caught up with him in Cork before he left, you will find his page in our Featured Writers Section.

Also newly added this week you will find another edition of the Calendar Road.  This month Sinéad focusses on a plant that is particularly prevalent along the roadway and is just about coming into its own at this time of the year.

And it’s now and then with the weekly installment of Artbeat Archive, as not only are we dipping into the archives but also we take a current look at the highlights from the arts calendar in April and May.
