Robert Pierse reflects from the tropics

Well-known solicitor Robert Pierse is launching a book based on his experiences while trapped by a storm on a desert island off the Central American country of Belize.

Under the Bed: Stories and Thoughts from a Desert Island is to be launched by Billy Keane at the Listowel Arms Hotel on Friday, May 24, next at 7pm in an event to be attended by plenty of music, storytelling and recollections.

Blogger Jeremy Murphy described the work as a 'gripping memoir and adventure story, full of stories, thoughts and reflections from Robert's life'.
