I spent two wonderful weeks at the end of September visiting Ireland and giving readings and workshops. I was a guest of the O’Bheal Poetry Centre, Cork. I read at O’Bheal, at University College Cork and at Fermoy. Below with poet-friends on the banks of Lough Derg at the Dromineer Literary festival: (L to R) Eleanor Hooker, Paul Casey (who was so gracious in arranging my Irish visit – Dankie!), Africa McGlinchey and Rosie (whose surname I forgot – sorry).
