Oíche álainn aréir ag Ionad Ealaíon Loch Garman at the monthly So Say So. Hosted by poet Stephen James Smith, So Say So always features a guest poet, on this occasion slam-poetry champion Julie Goo, followed by an open mic session at which members of the audience, having been given five random words, are invited to read freshly minted works from their very own imaginations with the only condition being that they use those five words. So Say So is an evening given over to the fashioning of little stories using nothing but the spoken word and the imagination and lived experience of the speaker, with a little lick of harmonious backing and muted lighting to turn the whole thing into feast for the senses. The atmospheric aural backdrop on this occasion was provided by Sam Killeen and Saoirse Duane. File den scoth is ea Julie agus áthas uirthi bheith i Loch Garman. One gets the impression that she could rap happily about any subject under the sun and never repeat herself.
