This exhibition will take place at Goma Modern Art Gallery, Lombard Street Waterford.

MURDER ON

THE ORIENT EXPRESS

The movie opens up with Hercules Poirot in Jerusalem solving a case where a rabbi, a priest and an imam are all accused of robbing a sacred relic.

Of course it takes him a wet minute to do this and bring calm back to a city rocked by religious strife. Next he is supposed to take a holiday so that he can rest and relax but is instead given a telegram where he is asked to come to London to help solve a case there. That means that he has to get there by the quickest means possible so that involves travelling on the Orient Express, first class of course which is all made possible by a member of the family who is also travelling by the famous train.

Once everyone is aboard the train it is clear that

Author Barbara Nadel: Published by Headline : Price e11.45

There are two separate murder investigations that happen in this book. One of them is headed by Cetin Ikmen and the other by Mehmet Suleyman. The first killing involves the murder of a carpet dealer whilst the second has to do with a serial killer called the 'peeper'. This latter killing looks on the face of it the harder of the two crimes to deal with because unknownst to everyone at the police station the killer is actually a member of the secret service that has gone rogue and is killing people who he thinks that are contrary to the morals of the Turkish society that people should be living by and that is an awful lot of potential victims. Not only can Mehmet not talk about the case to anyone he

The LIT is a brand new festival of reading and writing created by young people for young people.

The LIT Festival of Reading and Writing for Young People is the brainchild of WYA's 14-19 years creative writing group (Érin O'Hanlon, Amber Dowling, Daisy Drohan, Heather Eogan, Isabel Tiernan, Joy Curtis, Keeva O'Neill, Dylan O'Hare, Libby Marchant, Mary O'Donoghue, Nicola Cooney, Seán Dunne, Nicole Burke and Alana Daly Mulligan) who felt they would love to have, in Waterford (and for Ireland at large) A Festival that encouraged people of their own age to actively engage with literature and the wonderful world of words.
