We had a great attendance and reception on the first leg of the Skippy’s Tale Book Launches. Askeaton Contemporary Arts Curator Michele Horrigan (pictured) had some kind and incisive words when launching, and I was delighted to come back to the place that inspired my first book, Mathilda’s Tale.

I was happy to explain something of my thought processes in this informal circumstance, and toasting and remembering our departed friends, and in particular Mathilda and Tricky.

My thanks to all the Civic Trust members, and especially Anita Guinane and Anthony Sheehy, and the man himself, our good friend Micilín Ó Fliri for the image.
