On Weds 25th Jan the Sligo Field Club launched their second volume of its Journal, held at Liber Bookshop, Sligo. Wendy Lyons, SFC President introduced Sligo based author, Brian Leyden, who gave an eloquent and entertaining introduction to the new book, detailing and referencing the diverse articles contained within. The many authors were thanked for their contributions which resulted in such a range of varied and interesting articles. Special thanks were given to Jim Foran, the Journal’s editor, for his tremendous work in the production of the book ably assisted by Martin Timoney. After Brian’s formal launch, the evening continued with photos of the participants, which can be seen above, and an opportunity for those present who included many SFC members as well as Sligo Councillors and the general public, to mingle and discuss the publication, as well partake of light refreshments………. and of course purchase a copy of the Journal. All were sure that this second volume from the Sligo Field Club will prove as successful as its predecessor and will also add to the wealth of knowledge of Sligo. Paul J Allen
