On Friday May 18 & Saturday May 19th 2013, the beautiful, vibrant town of Ennistymon in Co Clare – located on the edge of the Burren – hosted the second annual Ennistymon Book Town Festival.

Empty shop-fronts were home to bookshops selling books of all kinds Рantiquarian collectibles,  paperback fiction, poetry, bargain new books, books of local interest.

There was a children’s event with storyteller Eddie Lenihan on Saturday afternoon at 3pm in the Teach Ceol at the top of the town & a treasure-hunt for younger book-lovers.

Award-winning short fiction writer Eddie Stack launched his new collection ‘Quare Hawks’ on Sunday afternoon.

There was plenty to inspire, delight and entertain & all events were free!

Ennistymon Book Town 2013 was a great success, thank you to all who came. Images of the fair can be viewed below.

Looking forward to seeing you all next year….
