Henry Winkler Bumps into Paddy Maloney

Paddy Maloney from The Chieftans heard that Henry was in town and tracked us down in Blackrock Shopping Centre. Funny how old friends from opposite sides of the world can meet up in a Superquuinn !

Niall MacMonagle

The Irish Times Magazine (May 16th) featured an article on Niall MacMonagle's 'TEXT' published by Celtic Press. His quote from Mary Oliver rather frightened me and perhaps will lead to a few productive days work this week; "Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
Niall interviewed Patrick Ness yesterday after the event in Wesley College. This will appear in a future edition of Inis.

Patrick Ness

Patrick is currently in Dublin for the Childrens Books Ireland Summer School.
Wesley College hosted a big event today where Patrick spoke to 200 students. Terrific response from them all.
Summer School starts tomorrow in The National Gallery, Merrion Sq. Dublin

On the previous post

Ok, perhaps the inclusion of a knitting pattern was not a suitably interesting subject for this blog!
It was added during a long train journey back to Dublin after I had eventually cleared my inbox. Must have been a little delirious.

Activity for a rainy weekend

If you have been inspired by Kirstie Alsopp to rush out and start sewing quilts! (Kirstie's Homemade Home CH4) perhaps you could start with something small.
Walker Books have provided a knitting pattern for Milo Armidillo to coincide with the publication of Milo Armidillo. click here for the details.
