"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Thursday bloody Thursday

Pat Boran

For the first half of the year, I work Thursdays (12 hour days) and as poetry events seem to happen a lot on Thursdays, I feel as though I'm missing out a lot.

This Thursday is no exception with three events on, which I'd like to see but can't.

1) Poetry Ireland Introduction Series Final night - featuring the incredibly talented David Mohan, Cliona O'Connell, Ed O'Dwyer, Pauline Hall and Rosie Shepperd. Irish Writers Centre 7pm

2) Boyne Writers Open Mic always great fun and this week featuring poet Willie Hodgins.

3) Pat Boran reads from his recently published memoir, The Invisible Prison at Blanchardstown Library from 7pm.


  1. You don't do shifts at Intel, do you? I used work there...

  2. Yes, I do shifts, 3 days one week, 4 days the next. Month of days, month of nights.
    I don't get to wear the bunny suits or anything though. I'm only in the logistics end delivering parts to the Fab for Schenker (the artist formerly known as Bax!)Where did you work yourself?

  3. Litho - full bunny suit - loved it, but having kids got in the way at the time. Had the same type of shift pattern as you. Never could figure out if it was a Good Thing or not :)
