This week, I’m reporting on the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Manchester Irish Writers.

The Manchester Irish Writers was founded in 1994 and has been meeting regularly since. It was co-founded by Alrene Hughes and Rose Morris. MIW is a very enthusiastic group of ambitious writers at various stages in their development. The Manchester Irish Writers meet fortnightly on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7.30pm, and new members are always welcome.

On Thursday 14th March, the Manchester Irish Writers celebrated their 25th anniversary with a night of performance, readings, music and dance at the Irish World Heritage Centre, North Manchester. I’ll be reporting on the event on this week’s show, with interviews from some of the group’s members, including Suzanne Jeans, Patrick Slevin, Kevin McMahon, and Rose Morris.
