As most of the inhabitants of this planet know, Tuesday is Saint Patrick’s Day. There will be parades, parties, hard drinking, and riotous assemblies on a global scale.
This year, Ali Isaac and I thought we would start a new trend. We are going to encourage the drinkers and partygoers, the green-painted ones with fake shamrocks sprouting out of silly hats, the paraders with shillelaghs made in China and dogs wearing leprechaun outfits, to stay at home and READ A BOOK!
To this end, we are prepared to equip the entire planet of revellers with A BOOK to read, completely FREE OF CHARGE.
I am not kidding. For three days, March 16th 17th and 18th, Grá mo Chroí, our little collection of love stories drawn from Irish myth, will be available from
For absolutely nothing!
So, get your copy, stay ahead of the pack, and you’ll be able to tell your grandchildren you were one of the first. You hung up your shillelagh and read yourself stupid instead.
Thanks to Ardfern for the lovely pic.
