Sharp and Gentle Side of an Irish Pen
Poems and Recitations
inspiration and vision of this humorous and insightful collection
of poems and recitations undoubtedly flows from the Gaelic
tradition of the seanachaí or storyteller.
Written in a natural lyrical style - ideal for reciting aloud
- they will entertain, inform and on occasions move any gathering
through the depth and honesty of the emotions expressed and
drawing inspiration from life in his native Glenade in County
Leitrim, the author's work is filled with keen observations
and reflections on issues everyone encounters no matter what
their background or where they live.
with a heartfelt tribute to Glenade and its heritage the work
explores important personal themes such as love, drink, death,
music and politics - all presented with great wit and wisdom.
Expressed in terms and images which are accessible to all,
the writings are bound to strike a chord with anyone who is
familiar with rural life in Ireland and bring a smile of recognition
to faces young and old.
