No stranger to the literary scene locally, a great crowd of family, friends and readers gathered at Red Books in St Peter's Square for the launch of Daithí Kavanagh's latest novel 'The Small House Co-operative'.

Having previously published a trio of novels in e-book form - 'The Gun', 'The Brotherhood' and 'The Crucifixion' - with the support of Meath based Tirgarr publishing, Daithí decided to take a different route this time and self-published his latest work, making it available in paperback in time for Christmas.

While his initial trilogy were detective novels, 'The Small House Co-operative' carves a different path, focusing on Romeo Ryan. A man in a downward spiral, he is given an opportunity to crawl out of the gutter and grabs it with both hands. However, his past life continues to come back to haunt him and threatens to drag him back into the underbelly that exists in the back streets of Wexford.

Daithí launched his latest work with the help of local poet Jim Maguire at Red Books and copies are available to purchase there for the bargain price of €8, as well as from Amazon where you'll also find his other work in e-book form.

He was extremely grateful to Wally O'Neill of Red Books for hosting and thanked everyone who attended on what was a proud night for him.
