Author Nuala O’Connor was in flying form as she introduced the special 25th Anniversary edition of “The Lightmakers” by Author and Poet Mary O’Donnell, describing it as a timely re-publication of a classic Irish novel.  The audience, which packed The Irish Writers’ Centre to the gills, was rapt as Mary then took to the podium to give a reading. Following a few words that described the work of 451 Editions from Helena Mulkerns, the crowd lined up to have books signed, or chatted in the light-filled environs of the beautiful house on Parnell Square.  Please see a selection of photos from the launch below.

  • The new edition of Mary O'Donnell's "The Light Makers" is lined up, ready for the launch, 18th July 2017!
