The Galway Bay FM Book Club

“You know you have read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend” – so says Paul Sweeney.

We’re looking for readers of all ages to join our Book Club.

Our Book Club Book Review takes place on the last Tuesday of each month hosted by Alan Murphy on The A List 

To join our club text BOOK to 53995 and we’ll get back in touch with you. Have you a suggestion for our book reviews – let us know.

Our good friends at Kennys Bookshop are joining us in this adventure and will be helping with our book selection each month. What better advice could we get!

Listeners Choice for September:

When all is Said by Anne Griffin

‘I’m here to remember – all that I have been and all that I will never be again.’

At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He’s alone, as usual -though tonight is anything but. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story.

Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories – of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice – the life of one man will be powerfully and poignantly laid bare.

Heart-breaking and heart-warming all at once, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said.
