I am happy to report that the Dublin launch event happened on Sunday 30th January 2011 in the Oliver St John Gogarty’s pub, Temple Bar. The event was featured as part of the Temple Bar Trad Festival 2011 and was hugely successful. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along and a very special thanks to Tom Morrow, Michelle O’Brien and Paul Doyle who supported myself and Paddy in helping to make the launch both relaxing and entertaining.
