Dublin July 2017

 It was a meeting of poets and scientists thanks to a genetics conference at UCD last weekend. Marie Fitzpatrick, Editor of The Linnet's Wings, Kathleen Mickelson, former Editor of Every Day Poets now Editor of Gyroscope Review and I took the advantage of proximity to meet up. We'd never all met before nad it didn't take too much time 'til we were old friends.
 Kent Reed (Minneapolis) with his wife Peggy was there for the conference but was also one of our poets at Every Day Poets way back. I'd met Peggy before. It was lovely to meet Kent.
 Mandy and Rob were attending the conference but it was a good chat we had in the Bridge pub.

No Vikings were injured during this invasion :)
Nobody got lost!

All in all a very good weekend was had by all.
