jWell, there's me at last night's pretty fancy Hennessy Literary Awards. The whole evening was fabulous from beginning to end - a Hennessy cocktail bar! John Lavery art on the walls! A Hennessy swag bag to take home! People wearing beautiful dresses! Canapés! (Priorities, people...) Bernard MacLaverty there in person to be inducted into the literary hall of fame! Marina Carr up on the judging panel! The Irish literary institution that is Ciaran Carty himself who had plucked all our stories and poems to publish from a submissions pile of over 3000 entries in 2017! Roisin Ingle compering the whole thing!
It is fair to say I am beyond starstruck!
Huge congratulations to the three very deserving awardees from last night: Aaron Finnegan, Louise G Cole and Manus Boyle Tobin.
