Galway-based Western Writers' Centre offered free poems, work by Geraldine Mills, Colette Nic Aodha and Dublin-born Gerry McDonnell, on the sunny streets of Galway city yesterday, Sunday. "Everyone seeemd happily amazed to be offered a good poem," said the Centre's Manager, Fred Johnston. "You could read them, frame 'em . . . they were nicely designed.
