Wexford Author, Cat Hogan, launched her new book, There Was A Crooked Man, in Wexford Library Thursday night last, unfortunately, I couldn;t attend but that is a book I cannot wait to read. I loved Cat’s first, They All Fall Down. #scottisback

There’s only one Wolff, Wexford are proud to claim ownership of him and his fans are thrilled to see him release his debut single, ‘Freak Like Me’ on Friday, October 13th ahead of his headline show in the Spiegeltent, and Wolff will document his journey to the charts in a series of vlogs.


Last but by no means list for this week, yesterday saw the official opening of the ‘Nature is What We See’ exhibition in the Blue Egg Gallery on Johns Gate St in Wexford town. This looks beautiful and is one I’m looking forward to seeing. The exhibition runs until mid-October.
