Finally its THAT Wednesday, the day I get to launch my new feature concentrating on Irish Writers.
Since I set up Swirl and Thread last year I have wanted to run a weekly feature that would concentrate on the wonderful writers that are homegrown in Ireland (mainly!!!). I didn’t feel I was established enough to host all these fantastic folk or that they would be willing to write a post for me…but I was wrong.
Ireland has always had the tradition of being a nation of storytellers and talkers. When I raised the possibility of running with this feature I was absolutley astounded and blown away by the feedback and enthusiasm of many, many Irish writers. I am delighted to say that it’s a booked out feature until the summer with places filling up for the early Autumn.
I approached Caimh McDonnell ‘pleading and begging‘ him to kickstart it 🙂 …and he obliged with this wonderful post on ‘How Irish is Too Irish?’
Without further ado the warm up act will move over and make way for the comedian, writer and all around funnyman that is Caimh McDonnell….
