Reading at Armagh City Library

Sunday, February 22, 2009, 3:27 PM

I'll be reading (from what, I have not decided as yet) at Armagh City Library on Thursday 26th of February at 7:30pm. I'm not sure what format the evening will take, but I think it'll be something along the lines of me reading a bit, followed by a Q&A. I believe there will be refreshments involved somewhere too.

The event is being hosted by the City Chapter, a cooperative initiative by Armagh City Library, Armagh Public Library, Cardinal O Fiaich Library and Archive, and the Irish and Local Studies Library to promote reading and literacy across all age groups. It's being held to celebrate World Reading Day, though it's a week early as I'll be off on my holidays on March 5th.

Anyway, all are welcome. I haven't decided what I'm reading yet as I'm struggling to find a passage in The Twelve that doesn't include too much foul language...

Oh, and there'll be a chance to win an advance copy of The Twelve for all who attend.

Ha! Good luck with that. Seriously, I'm sure you'll find something to wow them with or without the curse words.

Just carry an airhorn so you can self censor. If nothing else it could be the worlds loudest reading. Good luck and I wish I lived closer.

So, how'd the reading go? Any chance of you blogging about it?

Hi Stuart

Sorry to be a pain and use your nice blog to ask an ancestral question. My dad and I are trying to trace our Neville Armagh roots and are planning a trip over in March 2010. My great great grandfather James Neville (b 1839 d 1916) emigrated from Armagh around 1866 and settled at Bowling, Glasgow. He was married to a Mary Atkinson and was the son of James Neville, an Armagh farmer. Are there many Nevilles in Armagh and are they linked with a particular parish? Thanks - Ron Neville, Perthshire, Scotland rondelnev@gmail.com
