September 9 here we come!!!

ImageSo we have a date for the launch of our book, A Year On Our Farm; its Monday  September 9th and the launch will be performed on the farm by Damien O’Reilly of RTE. Feel so excited … and nervous.

The printers are hard at work and hopefully I will have a draft in my sweaty little paws in the next week or so.

In the meantime, Sarah, Ruth and myself are in Kerry with my sister and her family. We are staying in the old schoolhouse in Farraniaragh and this photo was taken from our patio; over Derrynane Harbour, Abbey Island and on to Lamb’s head. Its described locally as the best known view in Ireland and it is, without doubt, fantastic. In a summer  like this there is no place like Ireland. We went for a meal in The Blind Piper in Caherdaniel last evening (delicious as always) and the place was buzzing.

We are doing lots of watersports while, back home, Robin is up to his eyes calving. This is the most important period of the year on our farm. Fingers crossed, its going pretty well.

While its great to visit such a lovely place, we are all looking forward to going home to Robin on Saturday; and next week I will be getting stuck into invitations, a press release and sprucing up part of the yard that we are going to use for the launch. Local woman Shelagh Maher is going to do the catering; which will, of course, feature beef!

All we do is the prepare as best we can and hope then that lots of people turn up on the evening.

  1. I would love to come to the launch if that would be okay? I’m self publishing a book at the moment called ‘Would YOu Marry A Farmer?’ so would love to meet another farming author 🙂 I’m delivering at talk in Portlaoise that evening at 7;30 but would love to come if you have space and the timing works.
    Just read about you today in ICL 🙂

    • Would love for you to come, Lorna. We are opening the doors to everyone local as well as inviting friends, agri-professionals and others from further afield; probably mad I know because we are unlikely to know how many people will come but hopefully it will work out. don’t know how the timing will work for you but feel free to come either before your talk or after if it suits.

    • Please find attached invitation Lorna kind regards Ann
