Exhibition and book launch at Glenealy

IRISH Book Corner held a book launch and art exhibition in the Potting Shed, by Joly’s Garden Centre, Ballinacoola in Glenealy.

nnette Dunne will launch ‘Chocolate for Breakfast’, a collection of short stories. Each story is written in a different style and conveys different emotions, experiences and humor, just like a box of chocolates.

Ann Kavanagh is a visual artist, originally from Kilkenny, and she will be hosting an art exhibition to coincide with the book launch. She now draws most of her inspiration from her local environment of Wicklow and Dublin. Ann works across the mediums of photography and printmaking and is both a studio and board member for the Black Church Print Studio.
