Carmen Cullen will be reading from her forthcoming novel Hello Love, to be launched in The Mermaid Arts Centre Gallery on Tuesday 14th. November at 7.00pm. as part of the Yarn Festival. All are welcome.
Love persists and in Hello Love, nobody can tell Jacqueline what to do, especially her Auntie Mina who comes to live with the family in their Avalon Hotel. The little girl will only take orders from her mother and Imelda has disappeared… Hello Love is Carmen’s second novel and is published by Liberties Press.
There will be a donation per book to The Peter Mc.Verry Trust, Refreshments and Music.

Arriving later than most to the songwriting world, the “Hidden Stills” duo from Wicklow are making up for lost time. When two band mates from “The Whipperwills” decided to try their hands at songwriting, earlier this year, even they were surprised at the results. Songs of reflection, close harmonies and interesting melodies. Having played at the Hot Spot, Grey Goose, The Grove, Plucks, & The Klinkerdin, we are looking forward to sharing our creations with Bray Arts.
