Firstly we would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest featured writer Thomas McCarthy, we met up with Thomas on a recent visit to Cork.  Thomas talked to us about his writing, his childhood growing up in County Waterford and read from his recent poetry collections, you will find Thomas’s page under featured poets.

Also this week we travelled to Dublin for more on the road recordings they included a lovely series of recordings with Poet Pauline Fayne which will soon be available on the site and also a spine tingling performance of Handel’s Messiah on Fishamble Street as part of the one day celebrations which took place on the 13th of April to remember the German composer, The Messiah was first performed on this very street 258 years ago!  So for all of you who missed the performance we’ll be putting it up for your listening pleasure very shortly.
