Celebrating the life of Dennis O’Driscoll

I had a wonderful night in Smock Alley Theatre last night – celebrating the life of the late Dennis O’Driscoll.  Three wonderful poets read – Seamus Heaney, Matthew Hollis and Michael Hoffman.  A night which will stay with me for a long time.

This podcast is something I come back to time and time again:  http://www.lannan.org/events/audio-player/1207/553/

Sunday Lethargy


Wish the weekend was longer

and the social anxiety didn’t stop me.


All the plans that never came through.

All the hopes that faded to nothing.

Ah melancholia.. begone.
