All sorts of reasons prevented me from attending the launch of Circle and Square in the Shopping Centre, Tallaght recently so I want to take this opportunity to welcome another fine book into the literary world. Edited by, and the brainchild of, the indefatigable, Eileen Casey, it is an anthology of poetry and fiction to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Square Shopping Centre. Having lived in South County Dublin when there was only the village shop, the arrival of the Pyramid changed all lives. It is fitting therefore, to have such a collection of vibrant voices to paint its many faces through the looking glass of new and established writers, with contributions from Platform One Writing Group and guests. The Tallaght Photographic Society brings the whole book together with its interpretations of the work. I am delighted to be part of such great company. Thank you Eileen.
