Our first publication!
The Liars' Bench
In March 2020 the arrival of COVID 19 turned all of our lives upside down. Our response was to publish, every evening as the Angelus rang, a Facebook posting on the history, heritage and folklore relating to the beautiful area in south County Wicklow....an area that many of us call home. We are now proud to publish these postings in book form. Included are the informative and often very witty comments of the many, many who followed what we had to say.
What they are saying about The Liars' Bench
"The book is great and will be on our book shelf until the Lord calls. My only worry is that there will not be any cooking done in many a house for many a day........you captured the past and it will be ended down to many generations to come. Thanks and gratitude."
Leslie and Meta Roberts
"Congratulations on a wonderful book. My dad had his photo taken with you on the Liars' Bench where he spent many a happy evening after work catching up on the day's gossip, whether it be lies or truth"
"Its a treasure trove of local history and anecdote. You should be proud of what you have achieved"

To say I loved every minute would be an understatement. The week exceeded my expectations and I'm so glad to have been part of such a memorable experience. Thanks everyone, especially to Kevin and Eleanor for making the Homeward Trek so fantastic and so very, very unforgettable. - John Hopkins, Vancouver
