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 – antiquarian 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….
