LATER It is always later than you think, late in the day, late in history too late to keep a diary of carnal pleasures or be the chronicler of what must be forgotten and forgiven. No longer young-as-ever you are like Narcissus who sees his face and weeps because of the cracks and creases in it, the lines of age, the rheumy eyes, the purple veins no longer hidden.
The Tremone Bar, Carrowmenagh is the only site to see the complete project Abridged 0-31: Crash between 30 June - 8 July (weekend evenings only)
It is always later than you think. So late itâ€™s late into the season when the years of the tree are cut down to be paper for words not written yet, a cradle or a marriage bed. Gerard Smyth
