40 authors, two books, one centre


40 authors, two books, one centre.

When Toni Morrison said “If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it”, she couldn’t have imagined that it would spur over 40 people attending  Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre to put pen to paper.  Well, that’s just what happened and on Tuesday 27th May, James Harold City Arts Officer, launched  two publications, “Reflections by the River”, an anthology of writings from the Creative Writing group , and “Madeira Island Musings” a collection of stories from the intergenerational programme.  He praised the writers’ work saying that he found their work “entrancing” with a “fantastic spark in the writing”. 
The intergenerational programme now in its fourth year is collaboration between the transition year students in Galway Community College and older adults.  Maria Moore transition year co-ordinator said today that “participation in Young Hearts has been of tremendous benefit for both Transition Years and adult members of our group. Working together they have shared experiences, stories and fun. They have come to a realisation that despite vast differences in age, they have much in common”.
John McGinty facilitator with the Creative writers group encourages everyone with an interest in writing when he said that, “The sight of their writing in print should lift the spirits of those who never felt they might see such a day.  The riches of their lives’ experiences is a source of riches that can enrich our lives and we hope that they will go on to bigger and better things”

Both books include reflections, poems, memories, feelings and reactions to life and to nature.    If you would like to get a copy of either book please contact CroI na Gaillimhe on 091 895203 or call into 1 Mill St., located up from the Garda station.  The books cost €4 each.

  1. TRUSTED LENDER (LEXIELOANCOMPANY@YAHOO.COM)
    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
