Olivia Starke Author- DREAMING IN BLUE (1 Night Stand Series)

DREAMING IN BLUE (1 Night Stand Series)

by Olivia Starke

Blind since childhood, Sierra is satisfied with her success as a relationship therapist.  Contacting 1 Night Stand is an outlet for her physical needs, or so she tells herself.  When she meets Daniel, the chemistry is definitely there, but a single parent with a child has the terrifying potential to disrupt her orderly life.

After losing his wife in a fire three years before that left him terribly scarred, Daniel has focused on raising his young daughter and little else. Meeting Sierra through 1Night Stand is a way to step back into the world. And he definitely can’t deny the instant attraction.

Madame Evangeline has a sweet surprise for them as they discover one another…

Mattie Lennon Irish Author- THE FAMINE POT

      THE FAMINE POT
      by Mattie Lennon
 
Donegal man John Cassidy is embarking on a unique project.
 The following is the story behind it;
   In 2011 John found an old famine-pot, broken in pieces, in south
Donegal. He had it welded, restored and mounted outside Leghowney Community
Hall.
The following is the story behind it:

  In 2011 he found an old famine-pot, broken in pieces, in south Donegal, had it welded, restored and mounted outside Leghowney Community Hall.

   Such was the interest shown by American tourists that he decided to do some research on the whole Famine-pot/Soup–kitchen aspect of the famine. We found that because of bigotry, pride, misguided patriotism and inherited false information,this aspect of the potato failure was almost air-brushed from our history.

   In conjunction with An Lar TV he is now making a documentary on the subject.    Three prominent historians, Dr. Ciaran Reilly, Fr. Anthony J. Gaughan and a Quaker historian, have agreed to speak on camera and we are hoping to interview a number of centenarians in Donegal who knew famine survivors.

  It will be broadcast on An Lar TV which is reaching the Irish Diaspora in more than 120 countries around the world including such Irish groups and clubs as: Ireland Calls Radio Show, New York, USA/Irish Defence Forces Veterans.  Turkey/Paris Gaels GAA Club, Paris, France/London Irish Association (Hammersmith and Wimbledon), The Irish Canada Monument Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The Irish Sports and Social Club, Vancouver, Canada. The Irish Association of Toronto, Canada. The Tara Association, New Jersey, USA. Little Shamrocks.com, New Hampshire, USA (www.littleshamrocks.com)The Irish Association, Christchurch, New Zealand Cedar Valley Irish Cultural Association, Iowa, USA. The Ulster American Society, Pennsylvania, USA. The Irish community of Gridley, California, USA. The Irish community of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Irish Association of South Africa. The Irish Club, Basel, Switzerland. The Irish Club, Brussels, Belgium. The Costa Gaels GAA Club, Marbella, Spain. The Irish Club, Marbella, Spain. Gaelic Athletic Association Toronto Canada. The Uruguay Ireland Association, Montevideo, Uruguay. The Tolosa Gaels GAA Club, Toulouse, France. The Irish Community of Auckland, New Zealand. Auckland GAA, Auckland, New Zealand. The O’Neill Malcom Branch, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann, Washington D.C., St. John’s Avalon Harps GAA Club, Newfoundland, Canada.Tasmanian Gaelic Football Association, Hobart, Australia. The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, Iowa.

 It will also be advertised on our website; www.irishfaminepots.com which will be live in the next couple of days.

    The target market is Ireland and abroad, mainly the USA. And John is hoping to get the documentary into schools in Ireland and abroad.
