'On The Nail' Reading @ The Locke Bar
Thurs. 4th March 2010 8.00pm

The next monthly 'On The Nail' literary reading takes place Thursday 4th March
2010 at 8.00pm in The Locke Bar, George's Quay, Limerick.

Organised by The Limerick Writers' Centre this popular monthly reading and open-mic continues to attract audiences with a mix of poetry, prose and music.

This Months Guest Readers Bob Burke and Brendan Murphy .

Bob Burke is originally from Ennis. He now lives with his wife and three sons in a small village with no pub just outside Limerick. Bob has dabbled (badly) in writing since he was very young but recently not only managed to finish something he’d started but actually succeeded in getting it published. The Third Pig Detective Agency (published by The Friday Project – an imprint of Harper Collins) is his first novel and follows the adventures of Harry Pigg, porcine sleuth and his attempts to track down a missing lamp for local businessman, Aladdin. The sequel, in which Harry must try to track down a large bearded gentleman dressed in red with a penchant for saying ‘ho ho ho’ a lot, will be published in November 2010 and the third book in the series is scheduled for summer 2011.
When not writing and being an unpaid chauffeur for his three sons, Bob enjoys reading lots and lots of books and supporting Munster in rugby and Chelsea in football. Although a keen gamer (both board and computer), being comprehensively beaten by his seven year old son in Mario Kart recently has convinced him that his gaming talents may lie elsewhere.

Brendan Murphy, Cuirt Slam Champion 2005, All Ireland Slam Champion 2007, Over the Edge Flash Fiction Champion and North Beach Slam Champion 2009.

As usual music will be provided by Chris Wood and friends. Everyone is invited to take part in the open-mic after the main event, poets, storytellers, musicians and writers . Even if you don't write you are welcome to bring something along to read. The night begins at 8.00pm and there is free admission and free finger food for everyone attending.
