LAST night, as part of the Liberty Project I hosted an evening of readings remembering 1916 in Bewley's Cafe Theatre. I've mentioned it on the blog so I hope some fellow bloggers were in the audience! It was a hugely enjoyable evening that surpassed even my high expectations. Unfortunately the venue, which is a beautiful space overlooking Grafton Street in Dublin, have been forced to limit audience numbers to 50 which meant we couldn't fit all those who hoped to attend in. Although it was a unusual feeling turning crowds away from a Labour Party event! I could get used to it!! The line up included Fintan O'Toole, Anne Enright, Paula Meehan, Theo Dorgan, Glenn Patterson and Roddy Doyle and it doesn't get much better than that. Thanks to all who attended, and apologies to all those we had to turn away - but the fire regulations must be obeyed!
