Marking an historic time: 24 - 29th April 2016

I have just spent an amazing week on an art residency in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig in Co. Monaghan. It was a wonderful experience sharing time and stories with some really wonderful writers, musicians, directors and painters from across Ireland, Europe, Canada & Australia. It will go down as one of those fabulous weeks where I feel I learnt so much from the whole experience. A big 'thank you' to Meath County Council for the bursary to attend and Tyrone Guthrie Centre and for their ongoing support for the arts in the county.
