This blog is a personal take on Listowel, Co. Kerry. I am writing for anyone anywhere with a Listowel connection but especially for sons and daughters of Listowel who find themselves far from home. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A Christmas poem from Junior Griffin
MY CHRISTMAS WISH
Lord, when we give this Christmas time,
teach us how to share
gifts that you have given us
those who need our care,
the gift of Time is sacred~
greatest gift of all,
to share our time with others
the answer to your call,
the Sick, the Old and Lonely
a word, a kindly cheer
every precious minute
each day throughout the Year,
in this Special Season
share Your Time and Love
you’re Happy, Holy Christmas
be Blessed by Him above
Listowel Jer photographed a few people I missed at Vincent's launch, including my good self and our poet, Junior, with his brother, Bert.
Late news just in; A little birdie told me that Vincent Carmody might feature on Liveline today talking to Joe about his book.
