Ancient & Modern

I am being lazy at the moment and going through my photos from back in the Autumn.

So today we have another picture of Graiguenamanagh.

My selective dementia means I conveniently forgot to mention to Elly that Graiguenamanagh has a Spring Book Fair and becomes Graiguenamanagh Town of Books in September.

The inspiration for the ‘Town of Books’, came from Hay-on Wye in Wales and Wigtown in Scotland. During the Fair unused shops are opened up and filled with books for sale. They include books of every type: old and new, bargain books, second-hand and antiquarian books. So if you are searching for a special book, out of date and out of print, a first edition or one signed by an author, then September in Graiguenamanagh is the time and place.
