There will be an opportunity to purchase a copy of Bibi’s current book, Bibi’s Wellness Wisdom, and she will be available to personally sign copies on the evening.

Cashel library will have a lot of big names coming, such as jockey Rachel Blackmore, rally driver Rosemary Smith, biologist Eanna Ni Lamhna, Tipperary ladies All Ireland football captain Samantha Lambert, the flying nun Sr Patricia Wall, druid and story teller Eimear Burke.

The library will host Daughters of Dun Iascaigh authors, Dr Lucia Gannon from Killenaule, speaking about her recently published Memoir, All in a Doctor’s Day, and it will have Viking women warriors, women’s history with schools, Marie Gleeson, and navy sea captain Dr Elzaan Mornane, who will do a workshop with third level students on Breaking the Chains as well as an art exhibition called Women on Walls.

The library will host millinery vibes from hat-making duo the Crochets, as well as culinary arts to celebrate Mother’s Day on 22.

Meanwhile, On Tuesday evening, February 4, The Art Escape group from Cashel Community School art classes launched their exhibition in Cashel library.
