The sun came out and the hens clucked and the donkeys brayed, as hordes of young readers and their families swarmed to the beautiful Airfield Estate in Dundrum for the Dubray StoryFest, an extravaganza of story and illustration held in the acres of wonderful gardens and farm of Airfield.

There were book hunts, cartoon competitions and writers and illustrators galore for young readers to meet during this fun filled day which was organised by the wonderful Sarah Webb and Dubray’s Maria Dickenson and Susan Walsh.

I was involved in ‘The Magical History Tour’ held in the big Green Barn with writers Oisin McGann and Judi Curtin.

It was great to meet so many writers and bookseller friends and to enjoy the supper held afterwards in the old house. Thanks to all who organised such a special story filled day!
