On Tuesday, July 12, well known radio and television personality Myles Dungan launched the fourth Tipperary Reads Festival.
A large crowd listened as Myles spoke about the focus novel of this year’s festival ‘A Long Long Way’ by Sebastian Barry.
The novel’s central character is Willie Dunne, a young Dublin man who goes to fight for his country in World War 1.
Myles has written several books on the history of that period. He praised the way Sebastian Barry dealt with the subject and the wonderfully poetic language of the novel and recommended that anyone who has not already read the novel should do so.
Each branch library in Tipperary Libraries has multiple copies of the novel, why not drop in and pick up your copy today.
