Ross and Liz got a great welcome to Galway from Kevin Higgins of Over the Edge, and his friends and fellow writers, at the Charlie Byrne’s 2017 Poetry Showcase on February 9th. 

We were especially privileged to hear contributions from the poets represented in a new anthology called “Bosom Pals”, published by Doire Press All proceeds go to breast cancer research.
