Le Cheile Creative Writing Group launch “The Le Cheile Anthology”

Limerick Mental Health Association announces that the Le Cheile Creative Writing Group will launch their new anthology of short stories and poems “The Le Cheile Anthology” on Thursday, December 6, 2018. It will take place Limerick City Library, Granary Building, Michael Street Limerick at 6 pm with special guest Roisin Meaney. 

The group said “It is with pleasure that we introduce this volume of stories, memoir and poetry, written during the autumn of 2018, by members of the creative writing class organised by Le Cheile.  Those of us who oversaw this class were impressed by the wealth and richness of the participants’ work, prompting the production of this anthology. The poetry and sharing of life experiences have impressed us, as often the contributions have been written against the odds.”

The members of the Le Chéile Creative Writing group enjoy meeting for a couple of hours of creativity, writing, poetry, fun and friendship. Le Chéile Creative Writing Group has been held every Wednesday at 2 pm for 2 hours for more than 8 years.

Limerick Mental Health Association (LMHA) promotes positive mental health across Limerick City and County. We have a permanent home in the heart of Limerick City. A group of community leaders set up LMHA in 2002.




LMHA created and oversees the work of Le Chéile Peer Support Project, which promotes positive mental health within the local community. Le Chéile is a centre for people who have experienced difficulties in coping. Le Chéile provides support, friendship and helps people develop their talents and coping skills through the use of social and creative activities. They offer therapeutic activities and peer support.

They are helping the community to be well and maintain a positive mental health experience. One of their tools to achieve this is Wellness Recovery Action Planning – (WRAP) catered to you. These tools help you to manage the natural ups and downs of life.

They are affiliated with and share the aims of Mental Health Ireland (MHI) – a national voluntary organisation. They promote positive mental health and support people who experience mental health difficulties.
