Wexford Women Writing Undercover #2 launched in Wexford

Posted by Wally O Neill on

The second edition of Wexford Women Writing Undercover was launched in an interactive zoom performance last night.  The event was presided over by Undercover editor Deirdre McGarry and saw famed Wexford director Laura Way launch the edition.

Performances were provided by Grace O' Reilly, Ellen Lordan Lohier, Lily Whyte Weaver, Madeline O' Rourke, Sadie Harpur, Mary Blackburn, Abigail Way, Alanna Hammel, Paula Malone Carty, Juliana Menezes, Saoirse Wadding-Hayes, Caroline Stevens-Taylor, Teresa O'Hara and Ursula Clarke.

Wexford Women Writing Undercover was formed last March by Deirdre McGarry and Red Books Press, with the idea of providing a platform for talented women writers and artists in Wexford and beyond.  The first edition sold out quickly and the second is already on its way to selling out at time of writing.
