September 2019

And just like that September jumps out of the bushes with it’s cooler mornings and darker evenings. Autumn really is evident, with the blackberries ripening and apples ready to be picked – stretch, twist and pull – your basket will be full in no time.

Dublin is not sleeping this September – it’s alive with a number of festivals from food to film. The only problem is deciding how to fit them all in.

But first a poem by Patrick Kavanagh – On An Apple-Ripe September Morning.
