A Crazy Week – Scottish Turkeys Vote for Christmas – Culture Week – Stink Kicked Up Over Banagher Fair – Blog

Its been a crazy week, a stink has been kicked up over the shit that was raised that led to a man been cautioned for selling HENS (yes, that DOES beat banagher!) on the streets of Banagher during the fair, Scotland acted like a turkey voting for Christmas, and opted to STAY in the United Kingdom, but on a positive note I got a lot of verses out of both issues, and shred them far and wide on Culture Night with Tullamore Rhymers Club!

Chocoalte BrownWe started off on scedule in Birr at Hannas Garden, a unique coffee shop that would be loved on the Tiny House Movement, where we read to the owners, some passing birds and other wildlife! Its a gem of a spot, but we arrived during the quiet period.

For the second year in a rown, we visited our friends then in the Birr Castle Coffee Shop, where we read to an appreciative audience…

By invitation to Poetry Without Pressure in Mountmellick, we arrived en force to an event on its maiden outing where it got a good response in The Druid pub.

In addition to those, the club, sometimes sans moi, done support for  a CD launch in aid of Riada House, a launch for the Tullamore Dew centre and also held Scene of the Rhyme as part of the Foundation 14 festival in the town!
