FAIRHILL, THE Claddagh, the Spanish Arch, and Quay Street form the landscape and routes of On Nimmo's Pier, a collection of poetry by the late Ben Murphy, to be launched in Charlie Byrne's Bookshop, tomorrow at 6pm.

Ben grew up in Fairhill and his poetry encapsulates family and community life in the city during the pre-Celtic tiger era. He taught music for many years in Galway, and later studied psychology, reiki, and neurolinguistic programming. He died in 2012 and is survived by his wife Bernie, and children Sandra and Ian.

On Nimmo's Pier is published by Claddagh Press. The guest speaker at the launch will be Mary Ryan. All are welcome.
