Greystone's Scribblers Launch First Flight


Wednesday June 20 2018 05:10 PM

Greystone's Scribblers was established in 2009 by MS Ireland's East-Wicklow branch. They recently published their inaugural publication of poetry and short stories, First Flight. This is an inspirational book of well-honed stories that amuse, entertain and sometimes pull at the heart strings. This initiative was facilitated by Carol Boland with financial assistance from the Wicklow County Arts Office and we cannot thank them enough for their support.

World MS Day brings the global MS Community together to share stories and raise awareness for everyone affected by MS. Greystone's Scribblers launched First Flight on this day, May 30th, with guest speaker Ava Battles saying "I have read this book cover to cover and some of the stories pulled at the heart strings, while others you simply had to laugh at them. I highly recommend this book to everyone to read".   

100% of the profits will go the National MS Care Centre in Bushy Park. It is available to buy in Dubray Books in Bray, Supervalu, Sam McCauleys chemist and the Village Bookshop in Greystones, the Wicklow Bookshop in Wicklow Town, and also from boland-press.ie. You can also buy it online here or call the National office or the MS Care Centre for your copy.
