Snowbird by Jessamine O’Connor

Jessamine O'Connor at Ballymote Library

Poet Jessamine O’Conner launched her third book ‘Snowbird’ recently. To mark the occasion, she laid on an excellent afternoon’s entertainment at Ballymote Library (in County Sligo) on February 12th, with lovely readings of poetry from the book , artwork from artist Gavin Porter  (who did the stunning book cover), and music from some of the Hermit Collective: Jimmy Noctor, Barry Stevens, Helen  Grehan and  Gregory Daly. I’m a great fan of Jessamine’s work – she has a way with words – and I’ve had a couple of outings with the Hermit Collective. She also runs the Wrong Side of the Tracks Writers’ Group which I’m able to dip into and out of on days when I’m not working.  You can find out more on
