The life-relationship with Kilmore Quay enjoyed by the late Wexford writer and poet Tom Williams will be marked when his son David Williams reads from his father's work at the conclusion of Write By The Sea, the festival of writing and reading taking place in Kilmore Quay on September 24 and 25.

'The late Tom Williams is still one of our most popular Wexford writers, and Kilmore Quay and its environs feature in many of his writings,' said festival Chairperson Lucy Moore.

'His posthumous collection 'A Voice From Out The Crowd' took readers on a moving journey around County Wexford, including Kilmore Quay.. we're delighted to celebrate that connection through David's reading at our festival,' she said.

David Williams is scheduled to deliver his reading at around 5.30 p.m. on Sunday, September 25. His contribution will bring the inaugural Write By The Sea festival to a fitting conclusion.

The Write By The Sea Festival weekend will be officially launched on Friday, September 23, at The Stella Maris Centre, in Kilmore Quay, at an event sponsored by The Saltees Fish Company.

The line-up includes Wexford-based authors Billy Roche, Margaret Hawkins, Paul O'Brien, Cat Hogan, A.M. Cousins, Margaret Galvin, Jackie Hayden, Daithi Kavanagh, Jim Maguire, Peter Murphy and Fiona O'Rourke.
