Best Loved Poems: Favourite Poems from the West of Ireland, edited by Thomas F Walsh and photography by Westport photographer Liam Lyons, has been launched.
This book, illustrated throughout with photographs of the west of Ireland, features well known poems from the area. They are largely childhood poems, of the kind learned in school and then half forgotten, and will bring back fond memories for anyone who grew up there. The poems are mostly in English, with some in Irish. Biographical notes are included for the thirty poets featured, most of whom are native to Connacht.
Best Loved Poems: Favourite Poems from the West of Ireland is published by Currach Press. Price: €19.99.
