‘Easter’ is Poem of the Week in the Guardian

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 Mercywhich 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.

Strange Times

Mercy, my debut collection of poetry, is now available to buy online from Bloodaxe Books, the Book Depository, and Waterstones.

It feels like a strange time to be publicising my book, especially as it was supposed to be launched today. Screen Shot 2019-06-06 at 13.10.16

 

 

 

I still hope to mark the publication of Mercy some time in the future; for now, I wish only to express my gratitude to Bloodaxe Books and everyone who made this possible.
