Poem in Skylight 47, Interview and Translations in Russian

Poem in Skylight 47, Interview and Translations in RussianThe Galway publication Skylight 47 is becoming one of Irelands best literature papers and I’m delighted to have a poem published in issue 5. This issue has an interview with Louis De Paor, reviews of Alan Jude Moore’s excellent and highly recommended book ‘Zinger‘ and Edward O’Dwyer’s book ‘The Rain on Cruise’s Street’.

Packed with tons of poetry, I’m delighted to be in fine company along side Anne Irwin, Kate Dempsey, James O’toole, Noel King, Lorna Shaughnessy, Maurice Devitt and Ruth Quinlan who has two poems, one stunning piece appearing on the back page which is worth the purchase alone. You can buy Skylight 47 in shops around Galway and Dublin and I highly recommend it.
