Majella Cullinane 'Guarding the Flame'.
Last weekend I took a little trip to Galway to celebrate the launch of my friend Majella's fantastic first poetry collection 'Guarding the Flame'. It was launched at the popular Charlie Byrne's bookshop. Myself and Majella were both neighbours and class mates during our Masters in Creative Writing at St. Andrews. We supported each other with copious amounts of tea and shortbread biscuits (not to mention whiskey and fish and chips!). At the launch I bumped into fellow scribe Damian Cunniffe who found himself on the longlist for the Over the Edge New Writer of the Year.
Majella's books is available to buy direct from Salmon
publishers. So get buying and support great Irish writing!
