If anyone around here has led a life of rhyme, hey, it’s the bould Frances Browner.
The brains behind the monthly Poets Parlour in Mrs Robinson, and country-wide rhyming get-togethers in The Hot Spot, Ms Browner also founded the local Cafe Writers group in 2016.
You can check out the latter’s poetic musings down at Greytones Dart station, where a permanent exhibition is sitting pretty and framed on the walls.
That poets gathering at Mrs Robinson takes place on the last Wednesday of each month, with all the other Wednesdays taken up with Scriobh Arís at GCS HQ.
So, you know, Frances Browner eats, sleeps, slurps, prays and loves poetry. So much so she’s only gone and gathered her latest batch together in a brand, spanking new book, called Roots And Wings.
Launched tonight at Greystones Library by the noted actress Claire Mullan, the collection was supported by the community publishing department at the Limerick Writers Centre, along with Revival Press.
As the bould Kathleen Kelleher was quick to point out on the night, sure, Roots And Wings would make a fine Christmas present, John McGowan was busy capturing all the beautiful people, there for the sensitive insights, delicate dactyls and free booze.
