TATTY By Christine Dwyer Hickey

We had such great plans for this book in April, the one City, One book choice for Dublin 2020 but Covid 19 got in the way. Christine lives in Palmerstown and we are all hugely loyal to her as well as fans of all her books. She wrote Tatty in 2004 but it still resonates today. I quote Ann Enright……”Keeps getting better, long after you have put it down. In perfect, unassuming prose, Christine Dwyer Hickey conjures all our childhoods. This book is for anyone who ever wondered about the shouting next door”.

Meeting due to be held on Tuesday 5th May at 4pm but I will be in touch before then. Siobhan
