Well, what can we say apart from what an absolutely amazing night! We couldn’t have foreseen the crowds that showed up, with rumors of a queue building outside the door as Diarmaid Ferriter got up to speak; a real testament to three years of hard work and the community that has been built around this project.
Thanks to the Bia Bar for looking after us, Paul Reynolds for taking pictures (some below, and follow the link for the rest,) John Fisher for filming the event, Ciaran Mangan for doing sound, New Island for the stall and Luke Fallon for designing a fantastic poster AND helping to sell it. All proceeds from the sale of the poster are going to a Dublin homeless charity.
A special shout out to Diarmaid Ferriter for officially launching the book and for his very sincere and supportive speech. Many thanks to our Historian DJs who played a blinder. Finally, to all of you who came along and to all those who sent their best wishes! ♥ Sam, Donal & Ci.
The rest of the set can be found here. Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone who came out and made last night such a special occasion.
