Wexford and Thanks to Cliodhna Lyons and Paul Nic Cionnaith

Yep we are in Wexford as of probably today.

Book Centre,
5 Sth Main st Wexford Co. Wexford.
Phone: (053) 9123543

By the way must make a HUGE thank you to two people and that's Cliodhna Lyons (check out her live journal too she is really bloody talented )who invited us to the Free Comic Book day as well as brought us along to Leeds last week (I think it was Leeds I could be wrong) and Paula Nic Cionnaith with Spraoi who makes posters as gaeilge who took our wares to a Gaelscoil conference last weekend. I didn't know it but the lads at Cúpla Focal did take us along too. So thanks to both groups of people as well as the people at Cúpla Focal . Without the enthusiam of these people Rírá would not be doing as well as it has done.

Also I went selling the comic at a local school Clarecastle National School where their parents association were raising money for the school itself. We had a great auld success at it and met many a person there with an interest in comics as well as Rírá there was many a nostalgic chat had and tear shed over comics that have long since passed.
