A BOOK of poetry penned by Headford native Mary Lee was officially launched in St Fursa’s Hall in Headford by former broadcaster and presenter Tom Walsh recently.
The collection, entitled Bloom, features some 55 poems written by Mary, who now lives in Renmore in Galway.
The launch was an entertaining local and family celebration attended by relatives and friends. Mary invited Tom Walsh, a former teacher at Claran National School who lives in Dublin, to launch her book because of his knowledge of writing and connections with the area.
