Maggie and I recently visited Ireland. The aim was to visit Ougterard in Galway where the principal character in my latest book - Captain Scully - spent many years as a Resident Magistrate.
But sometimes the unexpected is more exciting.
As a part of the trip we stayed at Monart Spa Resort in Co Wexford. There we indulged in a daily variety of saunas, great food and what can only be described as luscious scenery! The staff became friends as they cosseted us with kindness, and not only that, it was all internet free! With he quietness came a time to reflect and read.
In the “Old House” was a traditional country house library and after discussing an idea with Matt Bodo, the manager, I have donated some of my books to their collection, as both my books and Monart believe in Healing, Hope and in Inspiring people.
Some memories you carry with you for a long time - this was one of them.
