I took a trip, with a delegation from Blackrock, to Vincennes which is in the east of Paris.

Festival America

It was great to attend Festival America in Vincennes this weekend. This is an annual, four-day celebration of North American culture and literature that sees a combination of interviews with very successful, renowned authors, and an opportunity for many first-time authors to meet their audiences.

Vincennes Sports Grounds

Great for our Blackrock delegation to visit sports facilities in Vincennes at the weekend, where we saw rugby, soccer, and had a chance to meet a great group of people from Paris Gaels GAA, who use Vincennes, among other places, for training and matches.
