POETRY SLAMS AND MOVIES

The Great Drogheda Poetry Slam which I hosted on Friday went great - by delaying start time in traditional Irish fashion number grew to 45 with 20 competitors in two categories. An enjoyable evening was had by all with an amazing variety of poems. Part of the Drogheda Fringe which, together with the official Arts Festival, has brought quite a buzz to the town this bank holiday weekend. I also had a few of my photomontages exhibited in Urb Exchange an interaction experiemnt in an empty shop space which has been arousing interest.

Next up is release of Irish gangster movie Trafficked with Ruth Negga and Karl Shiels directed by Ciaran O'Connor. It hits screens in nDublin, Cork and Galway on May 21st - not long to go - look out for it. It's a stunning little movie. More at www.traffickedthemovie.com It's distributed by Simon and my company Stoney Road Films.

Otherwise haven't managed to get the garden sorted, though it is finally looking really green with leaves out and blossom emerging on the apple trees. And these thinsg seem to have blotted out significant writing which is not a good thing.
