Last Saturday, 11th March, three members of Fermanagh Writers hauled themselves out of bed early and trundled off on the bus to Dublin.

The Irish Writers Centre in Dublin and Women Aloud NI teamed up to bring women writers from around the island of Ireland together to celebrate International Women’s Day with a readathon which ran from 11am until 3.30pm. Approximately 80 writers participated, sharing their stories and poems, in three minute bursts.

Writers attending the event also donated copies of their books to the Irish Writers Centre’s library. The Fermanagh Writers women brought a copy of our most recent collection of our writing, Tavern Told Tales, to add to the library.
