Begorrathon 2017: Go Raibh Maith Agaibh agus Slán!

And just like that … the Begorrathon is over for another year


Thank you to all the bloggers who took part. Cathy and I had a grand old time reading all the wonderful posts.


With over 100 posts on everything from James Joyce to Glenn Patterson, Elizabeth Bowen to Molly Keane, and Ireland’s patron saint, Patrick to Ireland’s other patron saint, Van Morrison, there was something for everyone.
