B for “the Batter” from Peadar Maolros
– Liam Porter

B is for beith,

Gaeilge for birch,

and for Bewley’s lofty clattery café,

back in the day,

frequented most days

by the cream of Dublin’s literati.

– Mary B Shannon

and how my heart aches

for a Bewley’s tea and cakes

– Bill Mc Donnell
– Helen Goodman
– Robin McNamara
Rainy Bridge image and poem below by Maura McDonnell

Crossing a bridge, with

The rush of life underneath,

It’s overwhelming.
