It was a surprise to discover that ‘Easter’ was Poem of the Week in the Guardian. Obviously I was very cool about it, no big deal.
‘In America’ also appeared recently as RTE’s Poem of the Day in association with Poetry Ireland.
Both poems are from my first full-length collection Mercy, which I’ll be launching (digitally!) in a podcast hosted by Cúirt International Festival of Literature.
I’m very much looking forward to taking part in this event alongside Michael Gorman. It’s free, but has a limited capacity–tickets are available here.
