Magnificent May's Newsletter

This month is a time of new arrivals here at Laurel Cottage and in this newsletter, we'd like to introduce you to some of them. Star of the show is undoubtedly Lambie (imaginative, huh?*) who came to us just a few days old, but who seems to have settled in rather well.

We've also been adding a few new products to our website: a number of titles which we are confident will add a spring to your step, and all of which have a Northern Ireland flavour but which will be of interest to anyone who wants to know what makes our wee country. Read on for more information on each book, and to get further details just click on each link to be taken to the product's page. More titles are being added each day, so please feel free to come and have a browse over on Cottage Publications.

We're also delighted to have added the prints from Armagh, City of Light and Learning by Joe Hynes to the site. For anyone who has more than a passing interest in the Orchard County, we think you'll find these prints evocative of this historical county. Read on for more details.

As usual, we're always more than happy to hear from you, so if you want to get in touch, all our details can be found below. See you next month!
