The Book is Launched!

Book Launch with Mayor Well, folks, the Book of Sweet Things is officially launched! We had the first of our two launch parties in the Killarney shop last night (the second will be in Dingle tonight). 

Adi Roche and FinbarrIt’s quite exciting to finally have it in our hands and I’m happy enough with the quality of the printing and presentation, and everyone who came along seemed quite happy as well. Michael Healy-Rae (above), the mayor of Kerry, was on hand to wish us well (and eat an ice cream).

We’re delighted that Adi Roche, founder of the Chernobyl Children’s Project (photo right with my father) came up from Cork as well. We’re donating profits from both launches to her very worthy cause. 

Anyway, onward to Dingle now, and another party tonight…

Thanks to our whole team, especially to Niamh, JP, Christophe, and the whole team in Killarney, who made the party possible and did all the work…

    Thanks so much, everyone! Dianne – the book will only be available in the US over the internet. Mercier Press, the publishers, from the link above, will post to the US no problem. I’m told it takes Amazon a long time to get books up, but it will be on Amazon eventually.
