Gorey Writers and Gorey Library

Gorey Writers are taking a break for the summer but we are busy getting our act together for the next season. We have lots of ideas to keep our group fresh including regular updates on this blog. Starting with news about the new library in Gorey, where we have discussed a room for our fortnightly meetings. We visited the site yesterday and were informed by 'a very nice man' that it should be open in September. Just in time for us!
