Terrence Brown Book Launch by Ann Treacy

On Tuesday night we went to a book launch for Terrence Brown. It was ablaze with the Irirsh literati. We saw Nobel Prize winning poet Seamus Heaney, one of my favorite poet’s to see read Brendan Kennelly, a poet I saw read the next day Eilean Ni Chuilleanain, professor we had at UCD Declan Kiberd, and many others.

The biggest treat was seeing a friend we made last summer Derek Hand. Derek presented at Patrick’s summer school last year. We always enjoy Derek and he’s the one who sent the heads up on the book launch.

The unfortunate this was that there was free wine but no food at the event and we headed to the pub, not for a meal after the event. We had a fun time – but paid for it the next day.

The event was held at the Royal Irish Academy is a fancy place and it was fun to go into one of the fancy buildings with a purpose. We took some pictures. We tried to catch Seamus Heaney, but I’m not sure that we succeeded.
