It’s Tesco’s in Enniskillen on Saturday, 20th December, between noon and 4pm. That’s where you’ll find the Fermanagh Authors’ Association selling the newly published Fermanagh Miscellany 2 as well as members’ own works. If you’re looking for a unique Christmas gift this year, you won’t want to miss it.
Meet the authors and get signed copies of their works – or get them to sign a copy of Miscellany 2 for you. It’s only £4.99!
Miscellany 2 features writings by John Cunningham, Bryan Gallagher, Vicky Herbert, Dermot Maguire, Seamas McCanny, Sean McElgunn , John Reihill, Brid Reilly, Dianne Trimble and others. There’s everything from poems and short stories to factual pieces about Victoria Cross winners from Fermanagh, St Molaise and links between Fermanagh and Texas.
No matter what your reading preference, there’s a good chance you’ll find something that will appeal to you amongst the members’ own works. Bryan Gallagher, Winston Graydon, Sean McElgunn and John Reihill each vividly recall life in the forties and fifties in Co Fermanagh while Dianne Ascroft’s historical fiction, Hitler and Mars Bars , set during the same era, draws readers into the events of the little known Irish Red Cross project, Operation Shamrock.
Vicky Herbert brings Crom Castle and its inhabitants to life as well as sharing some fascinating Fermanagh stories told to her by local people. You can also learn the Fermanagh lingo in her book, Just Hashin’, a collection of regional sayings. Want to get the inside story of local government? Then check out Irwin Brown’s My Working Days With Fermanagh County Council 1941-1973.
If you think that a picture’s worth a thousand words, John Cunningham’s Fermanagh In Sight, Volumes 1 & 2 is for you. Interesting narrative combined with stunning photos make it well worth a read.
