Ferrybank Library News
Mary Power Kelly, Dunkitt, Kilmacow, Co Kilkenny recently launched her beautiful memoir ‘Hydrangeas’ to a packed out Ferrybank Library. There wasn’t even standing room on a beautiful summers evening as Fergus Hogan W.I.T. spoke so eloquently about Mary, her attributes and the power of the written word. This memoir gives an honest account of Mary’s childhood in the 1950s growing up on an isolated farm between the townlands of Stradbally and Kilmacthomas in County Waterford. It captures a magical wonderland dominated by light, colour and natural beauty. The book is interspersed with poems and Mary’s own wonderful paintings, one of which adorns the front cover, immediately drawing you to the book before you even open the front cover. Mary’s book will be available for loan shortly in Kilkenny libraries.
