    I love reading, and Lee Rosy's, so this looks perfect for me. I'll skip out on the June one, but I'm already ordering the book for July! :-)

    Hi , Really sorry I am not going to be able to come tonight after all. I have a summer cold and feel a bit under the weather. I really enjoyed reading the book as I found it very intresting and although upsetting in parts I found it a worthwhile read.
    Hope to see you all at another meeting soon have a good night

      I'm definitely interested in this, as I recently published a motivational and life transforming book titled; STEP UP and STAND OUT. It's for both the youths and older ones who want to be overcome and lead a purposeful life. Available on, &

    Hi. Am going to Emerald Isle for the week so won't make it. Sorry. I thought the film was better than the book! Killarney man Fassbender gave a great performance though was a despicable character. The book had no tension, as we knew from the beginning he was freed.... telling of story just too factual for me as a book. Story of great historical interest though.Needed a good editor! Sad life, and its a pity we do not know what became of him subsequently.

    I've rsvpd to say I'll be attending - sorry about this but I've gone and double booked. If it's okay though I may still pop by to say hello before I go and watch Adam Buxton at the Broadway.
