Belleek to Ballyjamesduff: Words & Worlds
At 12:30 pm on Saturday morning 22nd September an excited group of ladies gathered outside the Cavan Courthouse to embark on a journey which would lead them to the launch and readings of their first publication ‘Belleek to Ballyjamesduff: Words & Worlds’.

This book came about as a result of the Creative Writing Workshops which were held by Culture Cavan during the months of April and May 2012. The Belleek element in the title came about as a group of enthusiastic ladies travelled each Thursday from Belleek to Cavan County Museum in Ballyjamesduff to share their creativity and stories. This true series of recollections and creative work is complimented by an illustration by group member and ceramicist Julie Shiels.

Culture Cavan is a project which is funded by the International Fund for Ireland together with Cavan County Council to promote participation among groups in the border regions. These Workshops gave this group of ladies the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and put these thoughts and feelings on paper. There are four sections to the book which are Memories and Musings, Haiku, Poetry and Short Fiction. Each section is made up of stories, imagination and feelings which ignite memories for those who listen to or read the stories themselves. The workshop was facilitated by Dr Anne F O Reilly.

This book is available for purchase in Cavan Genealogy and Crannóg Book Shop.
