Maeve Tynan’s first children’s book was published in December 2012. We blogged about it just before Christmas. This month, the in-store book launch will take place at O’Mahony’s bookshop in Limerick on Saturday, January 12th, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. Maeve would love to see a few friendly and familiar faces there!
